[Book] Production problems & suggestion

Hello Subversion book authors,

thanks for providing the "HOW-TO: Compiling the Subversion Book" in
doc/book/REEADME.

Although I followed your instructions strictly, I had some trouble
compiling the PDF version (HTML worked fine):

--- snip --- snap ---
$ make all-pdf
xsltproc \
    --output ./book/book.fo ./tools/fo-stylesheet.xsl ./book/book.xml
Making portrait pages on USletter paper (8.5inx11in)
./tools/bin/run-fop.sh . -fo ./book/book.fo -pdf ./book/book.pdf
(Using './tools/fop/fop.sh' for FOP)
[INFO] Using org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser as SAX2 Parser
[INFO] FOP 0.20.5

--- snip --- snap ---

This happened when I was offline (I only have a modem dial-up
connection). The first time I tried it, I ended up with a PDF document
without any images.

When I am online while executing this command, the book is produced
including images.

Do you have any ideas what is causing this?

I could not find any reference to 'draft.png' except one HTML file.

Secondly I found that unfortunately the produced book is in 'USletter'
format (we use A4 paper here). I had a hard time to find out how to
change this. Finally I detected that

   BOOK_PDF_XSLTPROC_OPTS = --stringparam paper.type A4

in the Makefile seems to do the job. I would like to suggest to add
this line as comment to the doc/book/Makefile and/or in the README.

Best regards,

Guido
