[OS X TeX] Index: Balancing columns

I use MakeIndex and would like to balance the columns in length on the  
last page of the index. I found out that the multicol package could be  
used, but I failed to achieve that.

I use a customized *.ist file as follows and would like to know how I  
could include a balancing into that *.ist file.

-------------- index.ist ----------------
quote '+'
headings_flag 1
heading_prefix "{\\bf "
heading_suffix "}\\nopagebreak%\n \\indexspace\\nopagebreak%"
symhead_positive "Symbole"
delim_0 ", "
delim_1 ", "
delim_2 ", "
delim_r "~--~"
suffix_2p "\\,f"
suffix_3p "\\,ff"

Thanks in advance
