comment latexmk with xelatex xdv mode
Could you quantify the improvement in execution time from making an xdv file instead of a pdf file.

Reference to comment replaced by actual code, to make answer self-contained. (I couldn't do that in my comment.)

comment Generate .1 files from MetaUML .mp files automatically with latexmk
There's actually a bug in the latexmk documentation in the file mpost_latexmkrc. I've put a corrected version at mpost_latexmkrc. It'll appear in the next release of latexmk.

comment Configure latexmk to recognize an old file with a new name
The output files still contain names of generated files. Removing the defaultfilename line simply changes the name of the generated files.

comment Configure latexmk to recognize an old file with a new name
The .asy files contain their base names (e.g., foo-2). So if one of the images is removed, not only do the names of later .asy files also change, but also their contents. The .tex and .pre files produced by the asy program also contain changed file names. So there's no realistic alternative to rerunning the asy program, which is what latexmk does. IMHO, it would be useful to request an update to the asymptote package so that the base string for the produced files can be specified by the user as an optional argument to the asy environment.

comment Latexmk and graphicspath
To diagnose this, we are probably going to need to see a MWE, an exact statement of what you did in each case, and the output from running latexmk.

comment Latexmk and fontspec
To diagnose what happened with the previous command line, you should look very carefully at the resulting output from latexmk. It should say exactly what command line was used, and so you should see whether, for example, xelatex was actually invoked. But the new command line (with the -xelatex and -synctex=1 options) is usually a better way to go.

comment How to compile a document with the pstool package using the pdflatexmk script?
A suitable place to put the line is in a file named latexmkrc in the same directory as the latex file. That's a configuration file read by latexmk when it starts up. (See the latexmk documentation for more details on how it is configured.)

comment pdflatexmk doesn't run makeglossaries for glossaries package (TeXShop, OSX)
@Matthias While the arara solution works, note that it will run pdflatex exactly three times whether not that is needed. For recompilations after small changes, fewer runs are normally needed, and on some documents more runs are needed. Latexmk is optimal (or close to it) on the number of runs, which is important for large documents.

comment pdflatexmk doesn't run makeglossaries for glossaries package (TeXShop, OSX)
@Matthias The solution in one of the answers (tex.stackexchange.com/a/44316/8495) to an earlier question does work; I've just tried it on your file. The checked answer in that question won't work for you because it doesn't define the dependency for acronyms, which you need.
