As far as I understand, the osm.pbf input support is still not in the 
splitter trunk archive. It is in 
https://svn.mkgmap.org.uk/svn/splitter/branches/crosby_integration but 
unfortunately not all dependencies are included. I use the package that 
Steve created: http://files.mkgmap.org.uk/download/6/splitter-r161.zip

The splitter is much faster with osm.pbf input. I wish it could output 
osm.pbf too, because then mkgmap could work quicker too. (mkgmap already 
supports osm.pbf input.)
