It appears that the macros that appear in the TeXShop's Macros menu  
are ok but the files in the ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/ directory will  
have to be changed. The

/usr/local/teTeX/bin/`uname -p`-apple-darwin-current

that is being appended to the path should be changed to


in all the files called by Claus' macros. Also, I noticed that there  
are altpdflatex* files that are still calling altpdflatex when they  
should be calling

simpdftex latex


I haven't been using those macros but rather engine files that, I  
suspect (am I wrong here?), do similar things.

Good Luck,
