Revisiting this as there's a broken URL in the instructions as well
(a new version of FOP has finally been released).

I'm even more inclined now to revert DJ's change, as the way it is
now, we leave the *broken* JAI tarball on the system. The way it
was, the tarball is left *fixed*. So, unless there's something I'm
missing here, I cannot see what benefit the change does, at the
expense of adding an additional command to the instructions.

Can anyone provide a clue on what I may be missing?
