Well... the environ variables will require minor tweaks; see below.
The directive to bbgen is in hobbitlaunch.cfg. My settings look like

        ENVFILE /home/hobbit/server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg
        NEEDS hobbitd
        GROUP generators
        CMD bbgen $BBGENOPTS --report
        LOGFILE $BBSERVERLOGS/bb-display.log
        INTERVAL 1m

        ENVFILE /home/hobbit/server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg
        NEEDS hobbitd
        GROUP generators
        CMD /home/hobbit/server/ext/city-display.sh
        LOGFILE $BBSERVERLOGS/city-display.log
        INTERVAL 2m

(the city pages aren't used as often, so they aren't generated as often.)

My city-display.sh is similar to the bbgen call, but the BBGENOPTS
from hobbitserver.cfg isn't what I wanted.

$BBHOME/bin/bbgen --pageset=city --subpagecolumns=3 --pagetitle-links
--pagetext-headings --maxrows=10 --nopropred=msgs
--nopropyellow=msgs,flexlm $BBHOME/www/city/

Whether you want a separate log file (if any) for each pageset vs a
combined log file for all bbgen runs might dictate whether you have
separate hobbitlaunch.cfg entries.
