Short: use Maven.

Write a project.xml file which describes the project on a higher
level than the ant build file. Whether that's really easy for FOP
with all the weirdness and conditional compiles is another matter.
Because Maven downloads dependencies from a repository, we could
outsource some more common stuff more easy, and the source distro
becomes leaner.
