I rerun the example and attached the file of the aborted example. 
(I hope I get the attachments right this time…)

The error message is:

>> ! LaTeX Error: File `/Users/dona/Documents/Data Personal/Flûte-à-bec/Test-L
>> ilypond-book/test-lilypond-book-lily/56/lily-085adc2a-1' not found.

I also attached the lytex file that I run. I took it from your site and all I 
changed was the included file:
I put test.ly (The basic test file from lilypond that comes with the standard 
Mac distribution.) in a subfolder ./Exemples

You see that there is no \graphicspath in the source file.

About my installation: It was a «manual» installation without Fink

lilypond-book installation instructions tell you to follow the installation 
instructions for command-line usage:

The user is supposed to put an executable file named lilypond-book into ~/bin 
which calls Lilypond-book inside the bundled App:
> exec /Applications/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/lilypond-book "$@" 

However, ~/bin can get messed up when updating to a new OS version, so I 
preferred to create the very same file in

Except for the different directory, I followed the instructions on the Lilypond 
website. Since I use Fink for other stuff, /usr/local/bin was already in the 
list $Path of .profile. Both the lilypond-book.engine and in command-line usage 
the lilypond-book  executable is found. 

Nevertheless, the different path /usr/local/bin might have an influence why 
lilypond-book and / or the lilypond-book.engine use full path names?

Thanks for looking into this.
