I finally got sometime and a RPi2 to play around with so I installed NetBSD 8.0.

# uname -a
NetBSD armv7 8.0 NetBSD 8.0 (RPI2) #0: Tue Jul 17 14:59:51 UTC 2018

I setup pkgsrc and installed wip/dspdfviewer. I have attached a
screenshot of the expected working of the application.

You can see it takes a presentation PDF (created from latex-beamer in
this example) and splits it for audience and presenter.

Let me know if it is alright to pull out the code from pkgsrc-wip and
put it into pkgsrc-current.
