It is built into (at least recent versions of) TeXShop so I'm not at  
all sure you have to do anything to use it.

If that isn't true you should be able to grab it by: Ctrl-Click  
(Right-Click) TeXShop; choose Show Package Contents fro the  
Contextual Menu; Go to Contents/Library/Spotlight and the importer  
should be there; copy it to /Library/Spotlight/.

Good Luck,
