In git master, libreoffice fails to build with:

sdext/source/pdfimport/xpdfwrapper/pdfioutdev_gpl.cxx:558:70: error: ‘const 
class GooString’ has no member named ‘getCString’

The relevant change in poppler 0.72 release notes:
* Rename GooString::getCString to GooString::c_str

The attached patch made it build successfully for me.
