And simpdftex, by default, runs (la)tex->dvips->ps3pdf13 but can be  
configured to do other things (e.g., (la)tex->dvipdfmx) by using some  
arguments. You can also set up simpdftex to pass arguments to each of  
the individual programs; e.g., I use (TeXShop-Preferences->Engine->TeX 

simpdftex latex --maxpfb --extradvipsopts "-R0" --extratexopts "- 
synctex=1" --distiller ps2pdf14

(all on one line of course).

Good Luck,
