What do you mean create svg?
FOP allows svg for input.  As far as I know it doesn't have an svg output.
Do you have a sample giving you an error using svg input?

This is why I do not tried to use SVG
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.95/output.html#svg
I my version on FOP if a try to create a svg it returns me that it isn't a allowed format.
