I agree with just removing them if they haven't really worked for 5 years.

I think it's a good idea, but I would probably build it as static instead of shared, since it will be an internal library used by tools and frontends. I didn't notice we changed this when switching to cmake. > Regards, > mpsuzuki > > _______________________________________________ > poppler mailing list > firstname.lastname@example.org > https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/poppler -- Carlos Garcia Campos PGP key: http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x523E6462
