The most canonical way to do this is to use GhostScript directly. This
will extract the page 2:

  % gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dBATCH -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE \
       -dFirstPage=2 -dLastPage=2 -sOutputFile=page2.pdf \

If you want to merge extracted pages (or page groups), just do the

  % gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dBATCH -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE \
       -sOutputFile=merged-pages.pdf pageA.pdf pageB.pdf [...]

This will preserve page sizes and embedded fonts.
