If one just wants to concatenate a bunch of PDFs into a single PDF, I
use Ghostscript and this bash function:

  pdfjoin() {
    gs -q -sPAPERSIZE=letter -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite \
       -sOutputFile="${1}" "${@:2}"

Example usage:

  pdfjoin combined.pdf file1.pdf file2.pdf ... fileN.pdf

It is straight forward to create a DOS batch version of the function for
those using Windows, but you still need Ghostscript installed.
