I did it (I mean, add some commonly used USE flags) in all my Gentoo
installations, and I would add "cups" for sure (since printing is used
every day in most machines I use and administrate).

Leio pointed some messages ago about the possibility of splitting some
poppler parts to fix this circular dep issue, what is the problem with
that option? The suggestion is not about splitting every poppler part in
tons of ebuilds, but simply split poppler in the minimum needed to fix
this problem (sorry if I missed the reply, I haven't followed discussion
too deeply :-( )

Thanks and best regards
