This will prevent the webapp working. The reason for overwriting 
cocoon.xconf was that a different setup is required for remotely 
distributed webapps. Without this different xconf the distributed webapp 
will still be looking in places like src, which is not in that packaged 
war file.

file="${forrest.home}/context/WEB-INF/cocoon-live.xconf" is used for the 
distributable webapp

file="${forrest.home}/context/WEB-INF/cocoon.xconf" is used for the 
webapp generated for "forrest run", which will not work if distributed 
to a different machine.

Once you do this you need to copy skinconf as before so that the webapp 
can find the files it is looking for.

I suspect this change will make it look like the webapp works if you 
test on the build machine, but if you distribute to a remote machine it 
will fail. Put the cocoon-live.xconf in and you have a better chance of 
it working.

This was certainly a problem.
