Reviewing the libreoffice- diff, I don't see
anything related. Perhaps you just get this problem randomly?

Distros typically use --disable-fetch-external, download external
tarballs before the build starts and place them in external/tarballs/.

So in case pdfium's tarball is missing from external/tarballs/, that
sounds like a problem with your build script, rather than a problem in
LO itself.
