Just a note to hopefully clarify the use of greenstone archive (GA) format:
'importing' converts source documents (import folder) into GA format
(archives folder), 'building' takes GA documents (archives folder) and
indexes them (building folder). GAPlug is used during the building
stage, not the importing stage.
If you have generated archive documents externally to greenstone (e.g.
using XSLT), then you don't need to run import. You put the archive
documents into archives, then run buildcol.pl.
I don't thnk that GLI can cope with this yet, so you need to use command
