[pmwiki-users] How to create a simple standalone PDF document with internal links

What's the simplest way to create a PDF page with internal links and
anchors using PmWiki?
I'd like to create a standalone PDF document, which contains a list of
page summaries and sections extracted from the pages in my wiki, with
each item cross referencing the others. For example, if my wiki's
Apple page refers to the Fruit page, I'd want to end up with a PDF
that looks like:
Apple - Summary of the apple page. See also: Fruit
[..1000 lines later...]
Fruit - Summary of the fruit page.
A reader who clicks on "Fruit" would go to the Fruit line.
I know how to cut and paste my current PmWiki page into an Open Office
document, and then print that as a PDF. That gives me what I want
except that the links all reference the online wiki. I want links that
reference anchors on the PDF page itself.
I'm using pagelist and my own local template to create my page, so I
have control over what appears on it. I'd be happy to put into that
local template whatever code is needed to create the internal links
Or I'd be happy to copy the page into Open Office and do a global
replace there to make everything resolve correctly. As long as I end
up with a standalone PDF document whose links work.
