> First, where in the makemaps.php script the autoLayersIndexes is used ?

autoLayersIndexes define what indexes can be used for auto layers. For
instance, if you have autoLayersIndexes = toto and if mylayer is an auto
layer (generated by a printLayer call), you may have:

layers.root.children = mylayer_toto

but you can't have:

layers.root.children = mylayer_tutu

So to answer your question, autoLayersIndexes are used in makemaps.php
to verify that auto layers suffixes do exist. But you can also use PHP
mapfiles without using autoLayersIndexes.

Well, not like this, but you can do something like:

<?php $postgis = array("name" => "blah blah"); ?>
  NAME <?php print $postgis["name"]; ?>
