For completeness, pdf(e)LaTeX offers pdfpages[.sty], complete with
documentation, test files, etc.  If you are in a rush and don't have
perl, pdfpages may be a better choice.

Both "texexec --pdfselect" and pdfpages produced corrupted PDF's using
Win32 versions of pdfetex 1.0 prerelease. This may be a .dll version issue
for the PC I used -- both tools did work on several unix/linux systems.
