You don't have to use pdfsync anymore ---if your OS is at least 10.4,
use TeXShop's Search (Preferences... -> Typesetting tab -> Sync Method
->Search); if you use TeXLive 2008 (MacTeX 2008), you also have
SyncTeX available. See

http://itexmac.sourceforge.net/pdfsync.html

``At the end of this summer (2007), pdfsync is slowly migrating to
pdftex itself. We are working at giving pdftex all the pdfsync ability
and more...''

It already has. TeXShop gives you either its own Search or SyncTeX.

Best,
