Have notified upstream about this problem.
Comment 3 Jochen Schmitt 2007-06-21 14:08:16 EDT
The iText package of Fedora contains the same files.
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2007-06-21 14:10:12 EDT
I know, see Bug 236309. :-)
Comment 5 Jochen Schmitt 2007-06-24 14:01:42 EDT
Package will going into the EOL process, becouse iText was remove caused by
licensing issues and pdftk contains a bundled copy of iText.
