I do indexes all the time using pdftex, makeindex and eplain.tex.
That is my normal mode of indexing a customer's pdf file. I save
the pdf file as text, add \input eplain.tex, change all the EOP
markers to \vfil\eject, set the starting page number and then index
away. I can't do them with eplain in Context because of a conflict.
But Context has its own built in indexing capability.
The eplain method allows you to print a pdf copy of the file with
marginal indications of the index items on each page. Suggest you
look at the eplain documentation, page 18ff.
