I am not familiar enough with makeindex and the glossary package to help
here. It might have something to do with the .ist file but you should
carefully peruse the glossary package documentation.

Make a copy of your makegloss.engine file and add the lines so the new file
looks as the following:

bfname=$(dirname "$1")/"`basename "$1" .tex`"
pdflatex "$bfname"
makeindex "$bfname".idx
makeindex -s "$bfname".ist -t "$bfname".glg -o "$bfname".gls "$bfname".glo
pdflatex "$bfname"
pdflatex "$bfname"

save and rename to indexglossary.engine or something you'll be able to
understand when you see it. I've just added the pdflatex and index
processing to the glossary processing.

If you always want to go through the complete processing you can make the
first line of your .tex file


and then Cmd-T will automatically do the complete processing.

I tend to separate the processes since not all of them have to be done all
the time.

Two things I noticed when looking at the output with that sample file are:

1)you don't need the \section{\indexname} and \section{\glossaryname} since
those are already printed by the \printindex and \printglossary commands.

2)The \newacronym commands should be a single line just like the \glossary

Hope all goes well.

Good Luck,
