Hi Orm,

this is the list for TeX Live upstream, your problem seems to be related
to the Alpine packaged version of TeX Live!

I cannot reproduce this here with upstream TeX Live:
$ pdfnup kumihan-en.pdf 
  pdfjam: This is pdfjam version 2.08.
  pdfjam: Reading any site-wide or user-specific defaults...
          (none found)
  pdfjam: Effective call for this run of pdfjam:
          /home/norbert/tl/2018/bin/x86_64-linux/pdfjam --suffix nup --nup '2x1' --landscape -- kumihan-en.pdf - 
  pdfjam: Calling pdflatex...
  pdfjam: Finished.  Output was to '/home/norbert/kumihan-en-nup.pdf'.

> TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2018/Arch Linux)

Please contact the Arch people about this, since it is not reproducible
in *real* *upstream* TeX Live.
