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. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
