Mine finds .sty, but didn't find any TeXShop engines or .lco files. I
know I have the former, but I don't know about the latter.
Did you go into terminal and use the "mdimport" command? Use "man
mdimport" to see how to use it. This will index whatever you tell it to.
There are some GUI front ends that do similar things, but I don't know
what they are off the top of my head.
