As far as the options you are giving, I'm sure that they all work. But  
there is an option which I believe should work and is much easier. In  
version 2.0+ of MacSword Manfred did us all a huge favor and he  
bundled the different Sword tools compiled for the Mac. You can find  
them by right-clicking the MacSword app and following this path  
Contents:Resources:bin. There you will find the imp2gbs files which  
can be run through Terminal.
