Desktop (x86_32), current versions of gcc and binutils.

Poppler's versions of the cli utils have always done this.

And it is essentially the same app; poppler is based on xpdf and they
have not made any significant changes to pdfinfo or pdffonts; the
difference is just the need to load libs.  

It probably won't be /quite/ as bad for xcb, given that it is written
in C and not C++, but there *will* be an impact.
