To find programs (or whatever files or RPM info) there is
a ARCHIVES.gz file on our first CD (od DVD):

zgrep '/usr/bin/makeindex' ARCHIVES.gz
...tetex...rpm: ... /usr/bin/makeindex ...
so that it is in the tetex package.

I assume this package and probably several other dependent
required packages are missing in your build system.

See our source RPM spec file what is in particular required
(except the usual development stuff like gcc/make/...)
to build SANE:
BuildRequires:  libgphoto2 libieee1284 libjpeg-devel
                libpng net-snmp-devel pkgconfig te_ams te_latex
Install those packages with YaST to make sure all dependent
required packages are also installed.
