With all your help, I've managed to narrow the problem down. I don't 
have a solution, but I can reproduce the problem reliably...

I started again, this time working with only a seed project. It seems 
that what I have done is broken the sitemap. Fair enough, a broken 
sitemap shouldn't work (but a better error would help). Anyway, I should 
be able to get back to a working project once the sitemap is corrected 
but I can't.

Here is a precise log of what I have done:

mkdir tmp
cd tmp
forrest seed

- Build succesful

cp /ext/openSource/xml-forrest/src/resources/conf/sitemap.xmap 

- Build succesful

In src/documentation/sitemap.xmap I commented out the root element, thus 
breaking the sitemap.

forrest now outputs:

Setup... done.
Iniitializing... ready, let's go :-)
  * [0]
-> [broken link] index.html <-

OK, so fix the problem, by uncommenting the root element of the sitemap.

forrest gives same results.

So delete all the cache info:

rm -Rf build

forrest still does the same.

Do I need to delete stuff in the forrest directory as well? If so 
shouldn't this be handled by the build process.
