I gather from a 2004 thread in fedora-docs-list that the toolchain was moving to fop,
but I don't see any fop yet in core or extras.
Basically the toolchain is still more or less broken for PDF I'm
afraid.

There seems to be some progress is this area, according to this post:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-docs-list/2005-December/msg00017.html

I grabbed the latest FOP trunk from svn, but it still seems to have Sun dependencies. Ant spent a while
crunching with gij, then:

   BUILD FAILED
/home/ellson/FIX/Linux.x86_64/build/fop/trunk/build.xml:368: Unable to find a javac compiler;
   com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath.
   Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK

I don't know anything about java development, so I don't understand why it couldn't find the
javac that is in /usr/bin/javac.

I set "JAVA_HOME=/usr" Is that reasonable on Fedora? It says to point it at the JDK. What JDK?

(I'm up to date with today's rawhide.)
