Right, /usr/bin/fop uses the environment variable FOP_OPTS. It has to be set
to "-Xms128m -Xmx256m" to produce the pdf doc.
This step isn't needed for ps doc.

So, the following works:

tfoerste@n22 ~/devel/svnbook/trunk/src/en $ export FOP_OPTS="-Xms128m
-Xmx256m"; rm book/svn-book.pdf; make all-pdf

Should the possibility to set the environment variable FOP_OPTS be included in
the Makefile ?

BTW, it seems that changing the variable FO_XSLTPROC_OPTS in
src/tools/Makefile.base-vars didn't have any effect on the output :-(

Oh, and last, but not least, is this mailing list the right location for a
(bug) report related to the svn doc ?
