I don't know if this will help, but we recently put together a little
capability to run an external FORTRAN program from within a Mathematica
notebook, and then grab and plot it's results.  Does that sound like
what you need at all ?  

I am not familiar with InterCall - in our procedure, AppleScript was the
key component.  I'll find and reproduce the relevant parts of the
notebook if anyone is interested.  For the record, this was done on a
Macintosh, running Mathematica v 3, and OS 8.
