Hmmm... correction (I had guessed this was the problem)...

In actual fact *all* plugins files *except* the ones needed were being 
copied into the distribution.

The plugin source files should not be in the distribution, but instead 
should be downloaded on demand by Forrest.

I've created a small patch (see attached) for the build file that 
exludes all plugins except the PDF output plugin (since ths is enabled 
by default on a new site) and includes the missing files that caused the 
above problem.

I will apply this patch tomorrow AM (GMT) assuming that nobody casts a -1
