Currently it is probably trivial to change gpdf just for the Debian
package, so that it uses libpoppler instead of its copy of xpdf.  For
pdftex, it was just some -l options in the Makefile.in's, changes to
#include statements, and renaming one or two functions from goo which
were also used by glib.

The patch is at
and it could probably made even simpler if the #include statements would
not be changed and -L/usr/include/poppler etc. used instead.
