-  - tar -xzvf fop-0.20.5-src.tar.gz
-    (recent versions of tar will warn about "A lone zero block at 33476" but

-  - cd fop-0.20.5 &&
-    ./build.sh &&
-    install -d /opt/fop/{bin,lib} &&
-    cp lib/{avalon-framework-cvs-20020806.jar,batik.jar} build/fop.jar \
-    /opt/fop/lib &&
-    cp fop.sh /opt/fop/bin
-  - edit your bash profile to set FOP_HOME=/opt/fop and PATH=$PATH:/opt/fop/bin
