When I extracted the PDF functionality from core I made it included by 
default. New plugins created with /ant seedPlugin/ will have the 
necessary line in project.required.plugins, old ones need to add it 
manually (or disable the PDF-Link in skinconf.xml).

 From the comment in

# The names of plugins that are required to build the project
# comma separated list (no spaces)
# Run "forrest available-plugins" for a list of plug-ins currently available

- note the (no spaces) comment

I don't know how to strip spaces from a string in ANT and have not found 
the time to research it, if anyone knows how the place that needs it is 
the fetchPlugin target of main/targets/plugins.xml

Yes, but with no white-space in the plugin list
