You can get the (pdf/xe)latexmk engines to always compile the root  
(or only if there are no included files) file by putting the lines

# make sure latexmk will compile even immediately after a run
touch "$1"

just after the setting of BIBINPUTS in the three engine files. This  
just updated the time of the root file so latexmk ``thinks'' it has  
changed and runs (pdf/xe)latex at least once.

Good Luck,
