Howdy,

Now we're beyond my understanding of the glossary package. My
impression is that the makeindex run does something like that and the
\printglossary command is like an \input command (not \include ---
but commenting the \printglossary command would do a similar thing
since it's usually near the end of the document). I'd carefully read
the documentation for the glossary package and see all of its
capabilities.

Good Luck,
