I haven't learned enough about Forrest yet. I am working with 800+ doc20 documents and I want
to have a wholesite.pdf and not generate the PDFs for each page. I believe I tried turning
off the PDF feature and didn't get the wholesite.pdf, but I haven't tried it since I first
started working with the documents and there may have been other problems. Hmm, I'll have
to give that a try this morning...

The pages forrest generates are determined only be the fact that there 
are links to those pages.  So the skinconfig option to disable PDFs 
actually just turns off the PDF link on each page so there are no links 
to PDFs.

For your case, it sounds like you could disable the PDF option in 
skinconf, and then manually (either in site.xml or within a document) 
create a link to wholesite.pdf and it will be generated.
