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.
I grabbed the latest FOP trunk from svn, but it still seems to have
Sun
dependencies.

There is an C alternative to FOP:
http://xmlroff.sourceforge.net/news.html

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
library

Thanks for the reference.  Unfortunately it depends on pangoxsl which hasn't
been maintained since March.   I  can't trivially get it to build on
fedora-core-development.   Perhaps  I'll try a bit harder tomorrow.

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.
