Sure there is! Make a copy of any of the engine files in ~/Library/
TeXShop/Engines/ (to preserve the executable bit), rename it
MakeGlossary.engine (or whatever you wish.engine) and double click it
to open in TeXShop. Substitute
bfname=$(dirname "$1")/"`basename "$1" .tex`"
makeindex -s "$bfname".ist -t "$bfname".glg -o "$bfname".gls
for the contents of the original engine file (note: everything from
the makeindex to the end is on a single line --- in case it is
wrapped on your screen).
Right now there is a bug that won't let you choose a different engine
if you have a
%!TEX TSprogram = xxxxxx
line so leave that off.
You could, of course, run pdflatex before and a couple of times after
the makeindex to fully make the file.
I'm hoping that latexmk will eventually be updated to include
glossary and nomencl processing (it does index processing
automatically now) as well as support the multibib and multiind
packages and then all the processing will be taken care of
