 Upstream http://foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html states:

 Xpdf 3.02pl6 was released 2011-mar-21. Because of potential security holes
 in t1lib, we no longer recommend using it. You can configure Xpdf with
 "configure --with-t1-library=no". The 3.02pl6 Linux binaries are built
 without t1lib. There are no updates to the source code or Windows binaries
 (which never used t1lib).

 "configure --with-t1-library=no" should be the default, making t1lib
