Which jdk version are you using? That is probably the old one, try 1.3.

Yes, it's supposed to create fop.jar in build directory.

Right and don't edit java sources in build/src directory - they are copied 
from src directory during build process.

They say fop-dev list is indented for the fop developers, not for developers

dealing with fop :), so the answer depends on what are you trying to achieve
or just customize fop for you own needs or to patch it or to improve
