That's probably it. None of the xpdf-0.7a patches apply to 0.80. This
one seems to come up a lot. There are some instructions for supping
the pkgsrc release in pkgsrc/README and pkgsrc/Packages.txt, and there
are example supfiles installed into /usr/share/examples/supfiles. None
of the examples, however, has the "delete" option, which is critical
for correct operation.
