[tex-live] poppler private API

Hi everyone,

Currently a couple of tools shipped with texlive use libpoppler, which is 
private API and not supposed to be used directly. Instead one of the frontend 
libraries (libpoppler-cpp, libpoppler-glib, libpoppler-qt5) should be used.

>From what I can see the affected tools are:
- luajittex
- luatex
- pdftex
- pdftosrc
- xetex

Please consider porting those to use the public API. libpoppler bumps the so-
version with pretty much every release, which happens almost every month, and 
recompiling texlive every month because of a new poppler release is no fun.
