I am attempting to use the glossaries package with LyX, and have had only
partial success. I've put the appropriate ERT into my document and created a
short makefile which exports the LyX document to TeX and runs pdflatex and
makeindex to generate the final pdf.  This works well, but I would like a
solution that doesn't produce quite as much clutter.
Obviously there is built-in support for the nomencl package, but that
appears to not have been updated in the last 5 years or so (
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/nomencl/) and it
doesn't appear to do what I'm currently doing with glossaries.

Is there a way for me to export the LyX document (and the included images)
to a separate directory, the same way I would create a build subdirectory
when compiling software?  Right now, it just appears that "lyx -e pdflatex"
just creates files in the directories where the source files are.

Even better, is there a way to have LyX run makeindex and makeglossaries for
me, and produce the final pdf without the makefile?

I've been using LyX 1.6.5 and svn trunk.
