I didn't find any mention of -aux-directory in my TeX man page (TeXLive 
'11 on Ubuntu Linux, pdflatex). Is it standard? What distro do you use?

Did you try running makeindex from the folder your .aux (and .idx) 
file(s) are in?

If that doesn't help, I'd suggest posting this question on a TeX-related 
mailing list (maybe one dedicated to your distro), as this mailing list 
is intended (primarily) for questions regarding the TeXworks editor, not 
regarding the different TeX tools.
