Yep, FOP-0.93 is much better than 0.2, but sadly still nowhere near as

Good, here's what I have in my Jamfile:

        # PDF Options:
        # TOC Generation: this is needed for FOP-0.9 and later:
        # <xsl:param>fop1.extensions=1
        # This one should be set if you're building with XEP only:
        # TOC generation: this is needed for FOP 0.2, but must be set to
zero for FOP-0.9!
        # No indent on body text:
        # Margin size:
        # Margin size:
        # Yes, we want graphics for admonishments:
        # Set this one for PDF generation *only*:
        # default pnd graphics are awful in PDF form,
