from memory, when i started with the most recent tarball of forrest
(version 0.4?), as a test, i built the sample site that comes as a demo,
and ran through all three skin choices in "".

in all three cases, i left the skinconf.xml file alone, and for
two of the three skins (forrest-site and krysalis), the google search
box was generated.  for the avalon-tigris skin, there was no search
box, which i thought was odd.

using the CVS tree that i downloaded just yesterday, none of those
three sample skins display a search box.  if there's something else
that has to be done to get a search box with the CVS version, it's
not obvious from the docs.
