Its in your configuration file and starts

format DocumentText '

This line controls what you see when you click on the default links
(the one that goes to the non-existant text versions in your case)

It is described [briefly] in the developers guide round pages 30-40
along with the outer format statements I think?

I'd change it from

format DocumentText ' [text]'

to something like

format DocumentText ' <a href= "[sourcefile]">PDF version</a>'

Sorry I can't be more specific - I am in a hurry and don't have time
to look it up myself. (Check the greenstone archives - someone has
probably already had this problem)

Good luck
