nice work, however:
(1) before including any of that I'd like to have an OK from Jonathan (for
xetex), Taco (for luatex), and Thanh (for pdftex).
(2) the patch isn't quite what I want. I assume on your system you get
pkg-config poppler --cflags => '-I/usr/include/poppler '
and consequently the Makefile contains
XPDF_INCLUDES = -I/usr/include/poppler -I/usr/include/poppler/goo
where the second piece could even now go away. Thus, in
luatexdir/image/pdftoepdf.cc, you ought to use
Moreover in the pdftex/luatex/xetex files I'd prefer
etc., but that might be an independent changeset.
