I'm using Debian Sid (yes, I like to live on the edge <g>), and running an 
all-java build setup.  Let me see if I can remember everything you need to 
install.  (Or at least everything I needed to install, for HTML and PDF 


And manually:
xerces (nightly build, since the last release is buggy)

And then one of the graphic libraries FOP requires, by hand.  I forget if Jai 
or JimiPro is the current one, since I have both installed from when I was 
trying to get it to work. :-)  

E-mail me off-list if you want my full build.xml and catalog files.  They can 
be long and tricky, or at least they were for me.  (No doubt there's a better 
way I don't know about, but what fun would that be?)

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
