Bug#630044: transition: poppler 0.16


here's a short update on the poppler transition:

as can be seen on [1], all rdeps besides libreoffice (mips/el) and gdcm have
been built and should be ready.

Even with [2] fixed, gdcm still ftbfs due to VTK being buggy wrt multiarch [3].
This can be temporarily worked around by binNMUing VTK to pick up the new
library locations [4]. After that, gdcm should be binNMUable again.

Julien seems to favor getting a proper fix for VTK though, even if that would
most likely mean to remove gdcm from testing for the time being.

LO ftbfs on mips(el). Rene believes this to be a buildd issue and as he told me
on irc is waiting for help from the mips porters, which hasn't happened so far.

Would be nice to know, how the release team plans to handle those two issues, so
we can get the transition done.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
