Just out of curiosity (how hard can this be, I wondered?), I decided  
to have a go at building xindy for OS X. If anyone cares to try it  
out (I've just run a couple of minimal examples, but they seemed to  
work OK), you can find a link to the archive at <http:// 

This should be complete and ready-to-run (on Tiger; no idea if it'll  
run on Panther); just unpack into /opt/xindy-2.2 and add the /opt/ 
xindy-2.2/bin directory to your PATH. The binary is PPC, not Intel  
(sorry, you people with new machines)... but that's what Rosetta is for.

I'd be interested to know if this works for people, but can't offer  
any support if it doesn't!
