I am not familiar with code that is built with gcj. And I don't know what 
libgcj.spec to use.

And I don't know if this requires gcc34 or if other gcc versions will 
work. I have gcc 4.1.2 included with base NetBSD 4.0 and gcc34-3.4.6nb1 
and gcc3-c-3.3.6 packages. I don't think I want gcc3-c-3.3.6 but that was 
a requirement for gcc3-java which I was thinking of building but then 
realized that was different from gcc34. 

I sent this yesterday to the pkgsrc-wip-discuss list. But maybe I can get 
some help here.

Building pkgsrc/wip/pdftk failed for me with:

I have gcc34-3.4.6nb1 installed which provides /usr/pkg/gcc34/bin/gcj

Do I also need gcc3-java installed? If so, how should the dependency be 

It is not listed in the NetBSD/x86_64/4.0_2007Q3/All/pkg_summary so I 
don't know if it is available.

Also why isn't pdftk in official pkgsrc yet? Something wrong with it?

p.s. I just need to cut out some PDF pages. texexec loses the page size 
and changes formatting but pdftk works good last time I used it. gv 
converting PDF and saving selected pages to postscript looks terrible 
(loses font details?). If anyone knows of an alternative, please let me
