Indeed, I just lifted the command line utilities from the ubuntu package
and added them on CVS head. I made an ./configure option to disable
building and install them. Thorkild, if you have a patch to add a
pdftosvg, send it to the list and I'll add it in. Make sure to make the
pdftosvg build conditional on the BUILD_CAIRO_OUTPUT option and check
that the installed cairo actually has the svg surface.
