The unsrt.bst file is part of MacTeX-2008 (TeX Live 2008) and is in
the correct location; I'm able to compile the file(s) fine. I'm
wondering whether the the full MacTeX is really installed, that's why
I asked what the System Preferences->TeX Distribution preference pane
said about the active distribution. It's also why I wondered what the
run in Terminal returned.
It the .bib files are in the same directory as the .tex file that
should be ok also.
Also, what does
return in Terminal?
