Yes, it's very simply done using pdfpages.sty (in
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/tex/latex/misc/). I had to do it recently
also for putting old files (MacWrite II files!) on a web page. I wasn't
aware of the other solutions, but the following worked for me: create a
file containing something like:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{document}

\includepdf[pages=-]{Article-I-Titre}
\includepdf[pages=-]{Article-I-0}
\includepdf[pages=-,landscape]{Article-I-Tableau}

\end{document}

That's assuming you got files Article-I-Titre.pdf etc. in the directory
where you create this file. You can even have portrait and landscape
pages in the same final PDF file!
