Hm, something is probably wrong with my texshop preferences. I have 
written "Make" in the two textboxes in Preferences-Misc-Personal 
Scipts. But now, after restarting TeXShop, I instead get this output 
from pressing Typeset:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.10b (Web2C 7.4.5)
  \write18 enabled.
LaTeX2e <2001/06/01>

i.e. it seems as if TeXshop is not running my Make.engine* file, but 
instead uses pdftex. (My Makefile uses texi2dvi etc and is silent 
unless there are errors.)

(Indeed, I have tried rubber. But I could not see how to control all 
the preprocessing steps I wanted. rubber should support lhs2TeX, but I 
gave up on using it.)
