I can understand about not being able to compile due to missing jars from other sources if their license says they can't be included in this download. That's not a problem as long as I can find them. Though I still can't find a jar to fix the javax.media.jai references, I'm more concerned with the missing org.apache.fop.fonts classes. Please tell me more about this "built on the fly". After getting all the files into a folder using the svn checkout command, I went into Eclipse and selected File > New > Java Project, then "Create project from existing source" and just selected that folder. Selecting Next and Finish, leaving any options as default, I then tried the Build Project. How would I set up the special build requirements to make the "on the fly" classes?

A simple compile of the existing classes in Eclipse can't find them. Some external jars are missing because of licensing constraints, AFAIK.

I am able to run compile ant target successfully, and the classes were generated in build folder. I am in windows environment, don't have an idea why you were unable to compile the project....?
