[OS X TeX] bbl and idx

I have been working on a book project in TeXShop using the documentstyle memoire; things have been more-or-less ok until today.
The document is (was) around 320 pages long;  on my latest compile, all of a sudden I couldn’t get through the compilation with an “r” command to the console.
I trashed aux files, went back and tried to compile with Makeindex and with Bibtex; MakeIndex returns an error message
Input index file Coeur.idx not found.
Usage: makeindex [-ilqrcgLT] [-s sty] [-o ind] [-t log] [-p num] [idx0 idx1 ...]
(my root file is called Coeur.tex)
and Bibtex returns an empty console.
Maybe the empty console is not a problem—I am not putting in any new bib entries, and my output still has a bibliography (though I can’t tell if it reflects all the entries
I put in)—though, having trashed the aux files, I expected a message saying that a certain number of entries had been accepted.

Looking at individual error messages, I thought some of the problems may have been with a few references in both bibliography and text to Czech names and titles, in particular the accents.  I went back and put them all in the format (eg, Hyk{\v{s}}ov{\’{a}}).

But I have no idea what the problem with makeindex is.  Where should I be looking?
