Actually *1* RC bug that was introduced by replacing the proper xpdf
code with linking to poppler - a moving target that never cares for
any other packages. poppler pulls in pthread and that goes boom.

Yes, xpdf works very well. THose people having problem should simple
compile a version from upstream without the pesty Debian changes to
link against poppler, and it will work again.
