pdf is not in the standard mime type known in the basic setup of Jigsaw.
If you want to make this extension known to the whole server, you just
have to add it in the default indexer.
See http://www.w3.org/Jigsaw/Doc/User/indexers.html
7/ is the point you need to read, to add the good mime type
After that pdf file resource will be created by the indexer.
