[texhax] symbols list with makeindex

we have a book that includes a small
list of symbols.  they have been written
out to an .idx file for processing by
makeindex.  there are no entries citing
more than one page number.

rather than sorting them into "alphabetical"
order, is it possible with makeindex to
generate a .ind file in page number order?

i have checked the archives of texhax and
comp.text.tex, as well as the documentation
in the latex companion, but didn't find
anything that looked relevant.  perhaps
i just missed something ...
