Hi all,

I need to install poppler 0.50.0 on my CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511.

I took the Fedora SRPM, rebuild it on my system and got
poppler-0.50.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm and

After install these rpms, I got the binary I need and it seems like it
works well. But when I check the dependency of this binary, I found it has
dynamic references to some libraries in my system, for example: fontconfig,
the fontconfig on system is 2.10 but poppler 0.50.0 requires at least
fontconfig 2.12.

Almost all dynamic dependencies on CentOS is very "old", and I don't want
to upgrade all related libraries. What should I do now? Rebuild rpm with
static reference? If so, how do I do that?

Is it risky to have poppler 0.50.0 with all these old references?
