You could put together a custom conditional ("notempty"?) that
accepted a pagename as an argument.  It would simply read in the page
and then just return !preg_match("/^\s*$/s", $page['text'])...

Then in your pagelist you would use (:pagelist ... if="notempty
{=$FullName}" ... :).

See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/ConditionalMarkupSamples#intext
for an example to follow.

Or another approach would be to create a PV {$EmptyPage} which would
return 1 or 0 depending on whether it was empty or not.
