You seem to have missed the FAQ about this.

Also it seems that you are not understanding the sitemap
concept. The map:generate needs to generate an xml stream,
which is then transformed by the docbook.xsl
So, in this case your map:generate needs to refer to
an xml source.

In your sitemap snippet, you are erroneously trying
to generate from the source of an "html" doc.

No. You need to apply a docbook2pdf stylesheet. I am
not sure where you will obtain one. Anyway follow
the main Forrest sitemap.xmap and search there for
"document2fo.xsl" (which generates PDF from the Forrest
"document" format).

I hope that those hints will help you.
