I'm sorry, it's just rubbing me the wrong way that many people here
assume that the best solution is to split poppler again, while not even
looking at other possible solutions. But let's try to be more constructive

Would it be possible to make cups a PDEPEND in gtk+ or is it really
needed at compile time?

The same for cups: can we make poppler a PDEPEND? Maciej, did
you get any further with looking into that?

And how about splitting cups, as Pacho mentioned, so that gtk+
would only need the lib?
