>>> 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 .aux and .log files 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 also works correctly with the nomencl package as well as the glossary and glossaries packages and other packages that produce multiple bibliographies or indexes.

I just played with it a bit. If I just remove the aux file latexmk won't re-run but if I also remove the pdf file (or if the pdf was never created) it seems to rerun.
