There is an C alternative to FOP:

xmlroff (http://xmlroff.org) is an XSL Formatter written in C that
produces PDF and PostScript. xmlroff 0.3.0 builds solely on open source
software since it no longer supports a PDFlib backend. It also plays
well with GNOME desktops since it uses Pango and the new PangoXSL

As I don't use XSLFO now, but I did in the past with FOP, I didn't test
this, but looks more attractive and lightweight (libxslt philosophy)
than FOP.
