Well, instead of having multiple .ind and .idx files with varying file  
names, like the multind and amsmidx packages, it looks like the index  
package takes the same tack as the glossary, and its successor, the  
glossaries packages by using user defined extensions. There is no way  
that latexmk can figure out what processing to do without some help  
(as with the other packages I mentioned). You could define extra  
dependencies similar to what is in the pdflatexmkrc file found in ~/ 
Library/TeXShop/bin/ for the glossary and glossaries packages. Let me  
know if you want to pursue this further; I'll try to help out as much  
as possible.

Good Luck,
