On a
related note I was unable to build a recent checkout of Poppler because it
tries to build all the GTK based tests regardless of whether or not the
configure script found gdk/gtk etc.  

Removing 'test' from the SUBDIRS in
the Makefile stops the gtk-tests getting built and allows poppler to
compile (I'm only interested in pdftotext). I guess if gtk-tests is enabled
it tries to pull in cairo, even if cairo is disabled, hence the cairo

At some point I intend stopping pdftotext generating spurious
extra lines where characters are overprinted. This is a problem with LaTeX
where it produces "'e" with a character off-set for e-acute and other
accents (pdftotext currently bumps the 'e' to the next line). 

Also on my
wishlist is to expose the wordlist from TextOutputDev to glib. And lastly
SWIG wrappers for the glib-bindings (if I ever get glib-bindings to
compile). Thanks, Tim.  I got around it by commenting out the 'tests'
target in Makefile (I was in a hurry), after that it builds  border-left:
