Unfortunately this introduced some significant breakage due to API
rototil. From a Gentoo tracking bug[1] it is known to break at least
texlive, gdal and cups-filters.

I managed to patch print/web2c to use the new API. print/cups-filters
look fairly straightforward as well. But I got stuck on print/luatex.
It has lots of poppler low-level API abuse and might not be so easy to
fix, at least for someone not intricately familiar with luatex.

Before I commit fixes to web2c we should discuss if the poppler update
needs to be rolled back. I don't know what the full extent of the
current fallout is.
