There were poppler changes at 0.16. The biggest issue is that is the last
release that supported Qt3 natively. I don't recall a 0.17, but everything with
poppler 0.18 on was built supporting Qt4 only upstream. You couldn't even
configure poppler to build Qt3 binding and longer.

I don't know the status at all for TDE. This looks like a package were we will
need to bring the last version that supported Qt3 into the GIT tree (may already
be there, I'm going from memory).

I used to maintain poppler-qt3 for Arch in AUR and it is no longer buildable
from upstream.
