Depending upon what is going on here it may be possible to simply write a platexmkrc file for the project (that's what the `p' in the file name means) for the pdflatexmk (or any of the other latexmk engines) engine if that's what you're using.

Here's a simple, dumb, first pass assuming you need only a simple run of

authorindex file

after the .aux file is created from the first run. I have no idea if this will work but it shouldn't hurt anything either. It sort of depends upon how the authorindex package puts information in the log file so latexmk can tell it's needed.

First: put all your project files into a folder by themselves since platexmkrc will be read by the latexmk engines for any processing of tex files in that folder.

Second: add the enclosed platexmkrc file to that folder. It tells latexmk how to process the aux->ain file (I think).

Third: make sure you are typesetting the document with the pdflatexmk (or xelatexmk, or latexmk, or ...) engine.

Good Luck,
