I have just tried to build it separately but seems it does not build because the
build targets are interconnected. I actually do not know how to build it separately :-(

Also it seems that people of Trinity project had forked poppler-qt3:

But we on openSUSE do not use Trinity as it is a Ubuntu-centric project and as such it seems
would have to make a second fork. 

I do not think it is good when a project undergoes multiple forking, and just better when the 
upstream keeps the code.
