Well it does have an effect if I add it to the fo.xsl customization 
file, and by using at least the 1.72.0 stylesheets. It might well be 
that this will work only with recent releases of the stylesheets.

To avoid the other warning (‘... falling back to proportional- 
column-width(1)’), I had to modify the DocBook source and put two 
colspec with a colwidth attribute, instead of only one colspec:
    <colspec colsep="1" rowsep="1" colwidth="*"/>
    <colspec colsep="1" rowsep="1" colwidth="*"/>

Simply because there is no possibility to break the text over several 
lines/pages. This is not dependent on the toolchain but rather on the 
input document. In your particular case this is caused by the program 
listings, which have too long lines. I managed to reduce the number of 
warnings to only 3 by adding font-size="80%" to the 
‘monospace.verbatim.properties’ attribute set, but this is perhaps not 
what you want. You may let FOP automatically wrap the text, by removing 
the wrap-option="no-wrap" from the same attribute set —but honestly the 
result won’t look very good. Or you may implement the line-wrapping in 
your source code extraction tool.
