Sorry to add on but I should explain a bit about latexmk. The  
following is from my documentation that comes with the packaging for  

Compiling a tex file that contains cross-references, bibliographic  
references and/or indexes is a multi-pass process; i.e., you've got to  
run (pdf/xe)latex multiple times with possible intermediate runs of  
bibtex and/or makeindex until all references are resolved. The latexmk  
perl program, rewritten and presently maintained by John Collins,  
automates this multi-pass process. By default it first runs (pdf/ 
xe)latex on a source file, determines file dependencies by examining  
the log file produced by the run and then automatically runs bibtex  
and/or makeindex, if needed, and the correct number of additional runs  
of (pdf/xe)latex to generate the bibliography, index and cross- 
references. This latest version of latexmk, 4.01, also works correctly  
with the nomencl package as well as the glossary or glossaries  
packages and other packages that produce multiple bibliographies or  

Good Luck,
