I think this is only needed if you want to locally generate the
documentation as PDF? I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain it's not
needed for a working VM. Of course, maybe you already know that.
Straight from INSTALL.md
#### Building Documentation ####
* `xsltproc` -- XSLT processor. A tool for applying XSLT stylesheets
to XML documents. Can be downloaded from
* `fop` -- Apache FOP print formatter (requires Java). Can be downloaded
If you're on OSX or Linux you should be able to use your favorite package
manager to install.
