Is there a particular reason for this choice of directory? Just curious...

This will *not* work. Please go through the README.txt file in the base 
directory first. Here's an excerpt:

"Installation Instructions and Documentation
Read the index.html file in this directory for the installation instructions.
The documentation relevant for your version is included with Forrest.
The Forrest website has documentation for the current development version."

Forrest doesn't use make and friends. It uses Ant as its build system. The 
distribution is self contained -- you only need Java installed. In most 
cases, you should be able to:

$ cd $FORREST_HOME/main
$ ./
