I am using


and here is the relevant part of the doc:

Sure enough, I am getting the following (non-fatal) error message:

> Package currfile-abspath Warning: The required recorder file (.fls)

What, and how, do I "compile with the '-recorder' option."?

Baffled regards

P.S. Just in case: I am now running TeXLive-2012 under 10.5.8 (PPC)  
with TeXShop 2.47.
