Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-03-22 17:56:07 EDT
pdftk uses CNI and depends on iText.  It currently bundles it, since it needs to
recompile it using the old-style GCJ ABI.  Can the iText package provide an
old-style ABI library in addition to the BC ABI shared object it currently provides?
Comment 1 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-12 11:54:01 EDT
Actually, it should be sufficient to build iText with -fno-indirect-classes.
Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-12 12:07:48 EDT
Note that it's only worth doing this once 236224 is resolved.
Comment 3 Jochen Schmitt 2007-05-24 13:23:50 EDT
I have done some test to include the itext package instead of the bundled itext
from pdftk.

Unfrotunately; I have found out, that I need C-styled headers file and object
modules for acces to itext.
Comment 4 Anthony Green 2007-06-22 10:53:23 EDT
I've just removed the itext package due to licensing problems.
