comment LatexMK incorrectly tries to build files used by minted
We are going to need a lot more detail to even attempt to give an answer, e.g., a minimal example complete with your makefile and source file(s). Latexmk reports that files 'report.aex' etc do not exist. So there is probably something in the log file about missing files 'report.aex' etc. These presumably need to be made, and you've invoked latexmk with its -use-make option, so it invokes make to make them. This is all expected behavior.

comment Post compile hook latexmk
Sorry. I forgot those only work in preview-continuous mode. I'll amend my answer. Could you describe in more detail what you want to do. Depending on exactly what your needs are, there may be a way of doing what you want without modifying latexmk.

The .profile file should be in your home directory.

It's .profile in your home directory. You can use any editor that can save plain text files with any name. TeXstudio will do it: In the Save or Save As menu, you need to set the file type to "All files (*)". To open such a file with a name beginning with a period from the File Open menu you need to do shift/cmd . to be able to see such files, which are normally hidden.

comment Malformed bcf file not recreated by latexmk after error
I've put a corrected version (4.44) of latexmk at users.phys.psu.edu/~collins/latexmk It should fix the problems described in the question, and I plan to submit this to CTAN shortly. But it would be useful for some regular users of biber to test the updated version to ensure the fix doesn't cause some other problem. (I am not a regular user of biber, so I have only tested the new version on very simple examples.)

comment Malformed bcf file not recreated by latexmk after error
I'm putting some code in latexmk to fix this. Meanwhile, one work around is to delete the offending .bcf file by hand. (Note that how problem shows itself depends on the exact versions of both latexmk and biber.)

comment latexmk ignore embedded file
@mankoff No it wouldn't work, and this has nothing to do with the bug. Latexmk determines the names of the source files from the .fls (and also .log) file. It then tracks these files for detecting changes in them. Setting $hash_calc_ignore_pattern{'tex'] as you propose wouldn't change anything about preventing changes in the .org file from causing a rerun of pdflatex. The second solution in my answer solves your problem, as far as I understand it from your question. If it doesn't solve your problem, then your problem is different from the one you stated.

comment Latexmk and KOMA-Script tocstyle package compile errors
It is possible to have a situation, particularly for a large document, where the compiled file will never converge to a stable result. It is also possible for a large document to need more than latexmk's default of a maximum of 5 runs; in that case configuring a larger maximum can be done. I see that latexmk reports that thesis.aux changed on the 5th run. To diagnose the problem, run the programs pdflatex (etc) manually, and save the .aux file after each run. Compare the different versions of the .aux files, and you are likely to see the cause of the problem.

comment Latexmk: How to Use $compiling_cmd, $success_cmd, $failure_cmd
The use of xdotool is to change the title of a window. Which window from which program do you wish to be changed? Note that xdotool only works with windows produced by XWindows. Also the examples assume that the window to be changed is from a previewer (e.g., xpdf or gv), with %D being substituted by the name of the viewed file (e.g., a pdf file).

comment Biblatex remakes bcf and bbl files despite no change to bib files
Adding an additional \cite does imply a change in the bcf file, and therefore latexmk will run biber again. Depending on the details, e.g., whether or not the additional \cite results in a change in the numbering of the references, the resulting bbl file may or may not be changed also after biber is run. If the bbl file doesn't change after that, then latexmk won't do an additional run of pdflatex (or xelatex). Could I repeat my request: When latexmk calls biber when you think it shouldn't, what does it report for changed files?
