Some forewarning to the Debian TeX Team would have been helpful.
Especially since the FTBFS is not easy to circumvent because that
stu**** poppler people have simply removed any (I repeat *any*) way to
get the library version from within the library.

I have fixed that for luatex and I am working on updating the patch for
texlive, but since there more progs (xetex, pdftex) are involved it is
not as trivial.

I expect to upload fixed packages of texlive-bin in the next 2 days.
