It would be nice if you told explicitly which changes you made.

The jar files which you removed because they are not part of the binary
distribution, could be present in the system of other users. fop-hyph.jar may
be downloaded from https://sourceforge.net/projects/offo/ and placed in lib, or
in build, or in %FOP_HYPHENATION_PATH%. fop-sandbox.jar can be built from the
source distribution and then is placed in the build directory.

It is not a problem to include non-existent entries in the classpath; therefore
the batch file is correct.

Note also that batch files use a weak and outdated programming language.
Therefore one must list all possible jar files to make it work for everyone.
Shell scripting on Unix and jscript on windows are much more powerful. Those
scripts look at what is actually present in the system, and list that in the

I wish people would not only update their expectations, but also their tools.
