Description of problem:
It is possible to make TeXLive independent on its internal xpdf library by
linking it with poppler. This prevents TeXLive from statically linking against
its internal xpdf so that one doesn't need to backport xpdf security fixes to
the TeXLive xpdf variant and fix all issues generally on the poppler side.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile TeXLive with external xpdf support.
Impossible to compile and link TeXLive against poppler.
Compile and link TeXLive against poppler.

Patch to move ObjStream class from XRef.cc to XRef.h so that the class is
visible to the applications using poppler/xpdf header files.
Kristian, Matthias, I noticed that the debug-skew patch is unapplied while I was
tweaking poppler, even though the hyperlink to the freedesktop bugzilla is noted
in the spec.

Fix QT3 detection for F-8 package
+1 , as this bug will be blocking the packaging of inkscape 0.46 (and its new
poppler-based PDF preview code).
I'm also attaching a patch necessary to fix the QT3 detection m4 script (at
least on F-8, didn't check on devel).
Thanks, I have put these patches in poppler-0.6.2-2.fc9
If you could push these changes to F-8 also, that would be fantastic.
