well I started with fink, since I thought finks apt-get would be very
familiar, but it is not, fink ships emacs 26, but I stay for it for the
moment because of its mercurial version, that is relatively recent and
compiled with python 2.7 which I need for my extensions

However osxfuse does not work (and therefore not encfs, but neither in
macports, only in homebrew, but right now I don't feel like changing).

I did something similar, the problem however was, as pointed out to me
by Stefan Moser, that emacs (emacsforosx should start from the command
line, only then it finds the latex executables, don't ask me why.

However I have a different question now. How did you set up Skim?

Stefan recommended to use 

(setq TeX-view-program-list
      '(("PDF Viewer" 
"/Applications/ -b -r %n %o %b")
        ("DVI Viewer" "xdvi -q -sourceposition \"%n %b\" -editor \"%cS\" 
-expertmode 0 -watchfile 1 -s 6 -geometry 843x1180+843+0 -bg white -xrm 
'XDvi.mainTranslations: #override <Key>BackSpace:up-or-previous()' %o")

However in my understanding I should better modify 
(here is my linux setting in my custom-init.

   '(((output-dvi style-pstricks)
      "dvips and gv")
     (output-dvi "xdvi")
     (output-html "xdg-open")
     (output-pdf "Okular")))

Any idea what to use for Skim?

Thanks and regards
