Description

If \makeglossaries is missing, makeglossaries-lite is supposed to warn the user but instead generates the following error:
makeglossaries-lite:385: bad argument #1 to 'gsub' (string expected, got nil)
This stems from the second of the following two lines:
styfile = string.match(aux, "\\@istfilename{([^}]*)}")
styfile = string.gsub(styfile, "\"", "");
If \@istfilename is missing from the aux file then styfile ends up nil from match, which causes an error from gsub.

The code needs to be modified to test for styfile ~= nil:

  if styfile ~= nil
  then
    styfile = string.gsub(styfile, "\"", "");
  end
