ps2pdf just works on multipage documents (unless I misunderstand what
you're after). The PDFs on my website are generated this way.

There are tools to cat PDFs together, but the task is non-trivial.
Checkout the comp.text.pdf FAQ at for more info.


PS: Ghostscript versions lower than 7 are broken for PDF. Perhaps you need
to upgrade?
