 If you click on the "core" link it will be broken.  I could swear I had mvn site:stage or

mvn site:stage -P site

generates a usable web site in ${user.home}/vfssite/tmp

The main difference is that it uses version 2.2-SNAPSHOT of the site plugin. The default is
2.0.1 which has issues generating urls on Unix systems. The bugs are reported to be fixed
