How about pdfcrop from app-text/texlive-core ?  It allows you  manually  specify
many things, although it does, inevitably, increase the file size for  documents
with many pages.

You can use the e-file command from app-portage/pfl to check  which  package  in
Portage provides a specific  file---including  binaries.   Emerge  pfl  and  run
`e-file pdfcrop`.
