There is a program called makeindex.  I would be very surprised if
it's not already included in your TeX distribution.  But if it's not,
you can always compile it yourself.  It's on CTAN:


Unzip it and run

  $ cd makeindex/src
  $ gmake all install

I don't have access to Mac OS X, so I'm not sure if GNU Make is called
gmake there.  If gmake is not found, try make.
