FWIW, I have this problem with LaTeX also, which needs multiple passes occasionally to fix cross-references and idexes and stuff. The solution I have in the makefile is a fragment like the following: while egrep -q "^LaTeX Warning:.*Rerun to" logfile ; do rm logfile latex taxfile done I don't know enough about the relevent tool to know if they actually generate a warning about whether they need to be rerun. In any case it seems a much better approach to simply run it again when needed rather than printing a warning.
