PHP/Apache/Postgres combo comes to mind, especially with the ability of
PHP to generate other .pdf documents on the fly (handy when wanting
dynamically generated data in a non-editable document).
You may also want to explore the possibility of a docbook/cvs
combination, to maintain editions of documents.
If you want something quick, rapid development, modular, and pseudo-
relational, check out WODA - Web Oriented Database Administrator. It is
a Perl/Apache combo that works well, and databases can interact with each
other on a very basic level: http://www.ddatabase.com/
I am interested in seeing what other ideas people suggest.
