Favorite tools for combining PDFs?

I've been using Qutic's qFax plugin to combine multiple PDFs into one, but it won't run under MacOS 10.9. (Watch out! This is not apparent on their website, which says it runs under "10.5+.")

 

Searching for alternatives, I see Bruce Robertson's ever-resourceful python/automator/Applescript hack here

http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/43924-combine-pdfs/

 

and the Scriptmaster/java hack (which I've tried but can't maintain across java updates)... and qFax.

 

Does anyone have an alternate approach to recommend?

 

The use case is as follows:

select an arbitrary number of records representing PDFs stored with Supercontainer, write them to a temp directory, and merge them into a single PDF in preparation for fax transmission.

 

Thanks,

Allen
