[poppler] Rendering hyperlinks as green rectangles

Hi - Okular renders hyperlinks as green rectangles when printing in Fedora 10. See:


This is because Fedora 10 ships a very old poppler:

Fedora don't want to update poppler because it would break the ABI:

Do you think it would be at all possible to create a simple patch to fix this problem for Fedora 10 without breaking the API by upgrading to poppler-0.10?

Looking at the changelog there's something about:
         * The printing flag defaults to true on PSConverter
If I change gFalse to gTrue at the end of the line here from
qt4/src/poppler-ps-converter.cc, would this fix the problem?

d->document->doc->displayPage(psOut, page, d->hDPI, d->vDPI, d->rotate, gFalse, gTrue, gFalse);

I can't see much point generating PS if you're not printing.
