First time I tried, the passiveTex backend was missing (this is the
other backend). I found the package xmltex which provided it. 

           Use fop for formatting. Default is still passivetex, installation
           doesn´t check for fop availability. It is an experimental option,
           expects fop in specific location, could be changed manually in
           xmlto script by modification of FOP_PATH

The command issued from the makefile uses passiveTex:
/usr/bin/xmlto -m ./doc/xfs-design.xsl -o doc pdf ./doc/xfs-design.xml
