    Make cpp/poppler-version.h header optional

we errored out if --with-system-poppler was used and there was no

That was 6 years ago, so it's possible that restoring that error on not
seeing cpp/poppler-version.h and changing the min version of poppler to
whichever one introduced cpp/poppler-version.h would work nowadays
without controversy and avoid the loophole you tripped up in.
