I don't think there was any such problem until poppler maintainers
decided to unsplit poppler into one big packages with USE flags again
instead of the nice split poppler, poppler-glib (that should have been
named poppler-cairo probably instead), poppler-qt3, poppler-qt4 and
I don't believe we should selectively cripple one GUI toolkit with not
having proper printing support out of the box on a desktop profile,
while others do, just because maintainers are lazy.
