Comment(by randy@…):

 No, the solution is not to bypass the tests. The solution is to install
 Xorg before installing FOP. FOP really isn't needed to install Xorg;
 however, the xmlto package can use FOP, but it is not required.

 Xorg is eventually going to be required if you use the JDK. So, if you
 install the JDK to do any serious work, you need to install X as well.
