There's a bug or two in IcedTea that causes a number of the Batik tests 
to crash, which I'm currently tracking down.

I just did a build of FOP 0.92 (I had the sources lying around from many 
months ago when this last came up); it builds with IcedTea and all the 
bundled examples are generated properly.  I haven't tried anything more 
complicated, ie combining FOP and Batik to run the entire toolchain, 
though.  I also haven't tried using the srpm, so I don't know what 
packaging-related tasks are outstanding, and haven't tried building the 
newer 0.93 or 0.94.
