It might be sufficient to add the following line at the end of
main/build.sh

mkdir ../build/plugins

Anyway, since the plugins are included in the archive file, it might
be easier to do:

mv ../plugins ../build

If the above is added at the end of main/build.sh, then the process
of installation is reduced to two steps (even in a multi-user 
environment) to be performed by the system administrator:

1. unpack the archive in the directory of choice
2. cd main; build.sh

This works fine (just tested on a solaris system).

However, I then tried to remove the pdf plugin, and was expecting
to receive the usual friendly message about missing plugin when
creating a site as a regular user. Instead I got the following
(which is not very helpful):

BUILD FAILED
/opt/apache/forrest/main/targets/plugins.xml:246: The following error occurred while executing
this line:
/opt/apache/forrest/main/targets/plugins.xml:249: The following error occurred while executing
this line:
/opt/apache/forrest/main/targets/plugins.xml:169: The <var> type doesn't support the
"depends" attribute.

I guess this is the effect of some recent change?

        Key: FOR-356
    Summary: multi-user capability (Was: Solaris problem)
       Type: Bug

     Status: In Progress
   Priority: Major

    Project: Forrest

Description:
Back in August I reported a problem about using Forrest in a
multi-user environment. I have recently downloaded Forrest 0.6 and
tried to install it on both a linux machine and a solaris system.

I have found that there is still a problem that prevents generic users
from using Forrest if installed as root. The problem is caused by an
attempt to write in the forrest source code file area. I don't know
which piece of code causes this error, but I have found that doing the
following can solve it:

chmod a+w $FORREST_HOME/context

This solved the problem on the linux system, but not on the solaris
system, because the filesystem where I have installed forrest is
mounted read-only. In order to permanently solve the problem, it would
be necessary to find the piece of code that requires write permissions
to $FORREST_HOME/context (and change it, since there should be no
reason to write there).
