Yes, but to do that, you'd still have to switch from xmlto to xsltproc, 
since it would require that you create something like my fo.xsl.

You can't just stuff the customizations into the existing cygwin.xsl, 
since you'd affect HTML output, too.

It's not easy to do this: http://goo.gl/HKxcK

1. sudo yum install fop

2. Patch Makefile.in as given

3. cvs add fo2pdf fo.xsl

Where is this reliance?

Apache FOP is Apache 2.0 licensed.

FOP runs under Java, which is open enough that it's in Debian stable; 
and if that's not good enough, FOP also runs under GCJ, which is GPL'd.

(Yaakov's FOP packages run under GCJ since Oracle's JRE isn't packaged 
for Cygwin.)
