I'm using the glossaries package for acronyms in my documents. Unfortunately I have to generate the .acr file by myself or by calling a seperate script.
It would be nice if the build checks for an .acn file and calls makeindex with the main.ist (generated by glossaries) similar to nomencl and the .nlo files.
Maybe it is possible to make an abstract Runner, thus the user can define additional makeindex calls depending on project files in the TeXlipse Preferences. i.e. I would create such a new AbstractRunner and define it shall run makeindex if *.acn is available with the parameters -s main.ist -o main.acr -t main.alg
