I'm trying to create a mobi from an epub, but, like you say, Kindlegen doesn't create a proper TOC. But I understand that Kindlegen is the better option than Calibre if you want to make fully compliant mobi files.

Do you use a combination of Kindlegen and Calibre? If so, how?

Thanks in advance.
That is not correct. If the source files have an NCX file which contains TOC information then KindleGen will create a "proper" TOC. It won't conjure one up from thin air though.
