I had difficulties compiling Poppler on the desktop in my office (where I am 
not superuser). It took me a looong time to find out that the reason was an 
outdated libtool. Maybe one could add a check for a recent libtool to the 
autogen script? -- Unfortunately I'm not great at shell scripting, so I feel 
I should rather not mess with this myself.
