The jpackage.org stuff looks to be a cadillac build.

It's not really a requirement.  Without jimi, FOP doesn't recognize .PNG images. Native support for .gif and .jpg are supported without any external packages, though.  FOP can be built to support these non-free packages if they can be found at runtime, but doesn't require them: they are runtime optional.
