[Since Maven knows it is a multi-module project it should not need a
different command.
Or at least it should warn the user to start again]

I guess VFS is not properly constructed then.

I just tried mvn:site having cleared out the local repo of VFS stuff and I get:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project commons-vfs2-examples: Could
not resolve dependencies for project
org.apache.commons:commons-vfs2-examples:jar:2.1: Could not find
artifact org.apache.commons:commons-vfs2:jar:2.1 in central
( -> [Help 1]

Whereas I just tried 'mvn site' with Commons Net 3.5 and it worked fine.
It downloaded Net 3.4 for Clirr, but otherwise did not need any Net jars.
