 Replying to [comment:21 NicosPavlov]:
 > Which versions suffer from the vulnerabilities? I saw that 0.61 still
 has the qt4 frontend, so it would be possible to upgrade to this without
 adverse consequences for ports. It could also be an idea to make a
 poppler-qt4 port for older code and a newer poppler one.

 I actually gave this a try -- building the qt4 bindings from 0.61 with
 poppler at 0.64. It didn't work, which didn't really come as a surprise.

 This isn't the first security issue poppler has had, and I'm sure it won't
 be the last, so I'm not too thrilled with any answer that requires us
 pinning the port to an older version.
