When pdflatex compiles the file the .idx file will be produced. That  
file acts as the INPUT to makeindex which then produces an .ind file.  
The .ind file is then read into the document on subsequent runs of  
pdflatex. It may take more than one more run of pdflatex so that the  
cross-referencing (e.g., the exact page number for the index  
reference) is resolved correctly.

Good Luck,
