Alternatively to the macro that Chris mentioned, I have been very  
pleased with "latexmk" [1]. It is a Perl script that automatically  
determines what needs to be run and in what order and then typesets  
the document accordingly.

Download the Perl script, install it according to the documentation  
and then create a new engine file for TeXShop (e.g. latexmk.engine)  
containing the following:


set path= ($path /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current / 
latexmk -pdf "$1"

Add the name of your engine (e.g. latexmk) as the personal script in  
TeXShop's preferences and your "Texify" process is fully automated.
