#57875: port:poppler shouldn't require C++14?!

Comment (by RJVB):

 But poppler-qt4-mac exposes only the Qt4 interface and doesn't provide the
 Qt5 interface.

 I thought about a poppler-devel port, but that approach means you can
 either have a stable environment in which you cannot install ports that
 require a newer poppler, or an instable environment as we have now.

 Installing a port info libexec is trivial and there isn't even need for
 explicit rpath specification on Mac.

 This is 1 extra port, not 10. Oh, and removing poppler isn't really an
 option. Too many dependents.

 FWIW, figuring out a workable framework to accomplish this sort of thing
 is bound to pay off because going forward we'll probably run into this
 kind of situation more and more often.
