Also from that KDE bug report:

It would be even better to see the poppler people working with Xpdf's
upstream. It's good that not all these packages will have statically-linked 
copies of xpdf code now. It would be even better if poppler wasn't a
fork of Xpdf though.

Already poppler is behind on a lot of bug fixes from Xpdf 3.01.
I imagine most have been merged by now, but there's a lot of duplicate
effort involved.
