The whole bunch of errors produced by fop is something you can get
accustomed to.  I found most of them don't really hurt.

In my PDF files, I've found all of those you have quoted, and I don't
bother since apparently the stylesheets contain enough workarounds
to make fop create acceptable results.

This, however,  is a hint.... (see below)

A variablelist in docbook takes a 'termlength' attribute, and if you are
using fop, it is advisable to supply a "good" value here.  I guess that
the [INFO] above tries to tell you that fop couldn't fit your term into
its place.  IIRC this is a "known" fop issue.
