Thanks for the suggestion. In the end, it turned out not to be practical for me
(since the style-files for this book had to be shared among many authors, etc.).
My eventual solution (courtesy of a friend) was this, which I include at this
late date for others who may care about how to make it work:
In my TeXworks preferences, in the typesetting tab, my default
processing tool is: pdfLaTeX+MakeIndex+BibTeX
Associated with that particular tool is this configuration:
As an alternative, I've also used
where "full path" is a sequence of folders, and the double-quotes are there to
handle the blanks in various folder/directory names.
I hate having this dependency stuck in the TexWorks settings rather than in some
project-associated file that I could maintain in the book's repository, but
that's life, and this works well enough for now.
