Well, the reason I never installed latexmk is that I think about
generating the index only when I am reaching the end of the writing
because I am also using showidx. In other words, this is perhaps the
third or fourth time ever that I have been even thinking about
generating the index.
In fact, the only reason I was thinking of index at the beginning of
Vol 3 of the magnum was that the thread on "Chapter bibliographies"
had reminded me that I had long wanted to have Chapter indexes. (I
got chapter tocs a while ago, using titletoc.)
By the way, after the precious mishap, sure enough, I got nowhere
fast: Companion 2ed says on page 681, re the index package by David
Jones, "Note, however, that this makes the creation of a chapter
index more difficult." But that is the only mention in the whole
book. In return to "Latex chapter index", Google gave me only
somebody's same question on old.nabble, unanswered.
Still embarrassed regards
