Simon, have you managed to get xindy to work on 
OS X?  The webpage says there's no port for the 
Mac, and installation relies on a prebuilt 
binary.  Building from source doesn't look like 
something for the faint of heart, but if you've 
managed to do it, it would be interesting to find 
out how.
