While someone could fix the package, you may want to consider not doing
so.  After running into endless bugs in xpdf, I personally switched to
mupdf for a light-weight PDF reader and found it superior in every respect
except for the fact that it doesn't, so far as I can tell, support
printing.  So I use mupdf to view PDF documents, and on the rare occasion
that I want to print one, I open it in gv (which I find clunkier, but
which generally works fine and prints).
