It used to be true in the past, but it no longer is. Where did you find  
such an indication? There is probably some documentation to update 
Have a look a the following page:
Basically you have to download the hyphenation patterns from another 
website and put the fop-hyph.jar file you get in the build/ directory of 
your FOP installation. This separate process is necessary because of 
licensing issues (hyphenation patterns may not be distributed with FOP).
