xsltproc (from libxslt) - which you probably have installed - is
enough to create man pages and HTML docs. Also, FOP - the last time I
used it - made use of Apache Batik and therefore required X11. This
makes it harder to run in a headless (server) environment. FOP is
only required for generating PDF files.
