Thanks for your reply.  My comments are in-line.

My machine is an Athlon XP 2100+, with 512 MB of memory.  I don't
think it should take that long to do the "plain vanilla" generate a
site with forrest, which is why I'm asking around.  /-:

Well, I tried to do just a 
% mkdir tmp
% cd tmp
% forrest seed
% forrest sitei

but it hung at the same point.  So I tried using the "user-friendly"
steps found on the site, but to no effect.

Is there any way to get more debug information?  I've found the
build/webapp/WEB-INF/logs directory, but they don't tell too much.



Oh Sure. But What's The Speed Of Dark?
