doc build tool 'fop' seems to be missing

I'm figuring out the definitive list of packages needed to build 32-bit
Cygwin DLL and docs.  The DLL now builds OK.  The docs build fails:

/oss/build make | tee make.out
Writing cygwin-functions.html for chapter(cygwin-functions)
Writing cygwin-api.html for book(cygwin-api)
xmlto --skip-validation --with-dblatex html -o faq -m
/oss/src/winsup/doc/cygwin.xsl /oss/src/winsup/doc/faq.xml
Writing faq.html for article(faq)
sed -i 's;</a><a name="id[0-9]*"></a>;</a>;g' faq/faq.html
/oss/src/winsup/doc/ faq/faq.html
xsltproc --xinclude /oss/src/winsup/doc/fo.xsl
/oss/src/winsup/doc/cygwin-ug-net.xml | fop -q -fo -
/bin/sh: fop: command not found
Making portrait pages on USletter paper (8.5inx11in)
make[3]: [cygwin-ug-net/cygwin-ug-net.pdf] Error 127 (ignored)
Makefile:61: recipe for target 'cygwin-ug-net/cygwin-ug-net.pdf' failed
xsltproc --xinclude /oss/src/winsup/doc/fo.xsl cygwin-api.xml | fop -q -fo -
/bin/sh: fop: command not found

Package Search yields no hits for "/fop$" or "/fop.exe$".  The
winsup/doc/README doesn't mention fop.  I've installed all packages listed
in that README.  The winsup/doc/ChangeLog mentions fop as now part of the
build process, along with xsltproc, in an update dated 2013-07-20.  But I
can't find fop.  Any leads appreciated.


I'm actually more of a Dapper Dan man.
