The reason why comment #6 says it's a 'bad' solution (Inkscape using an
internal API that has changed in recent poppler releases) has not been
addressed in Inkscape trunk. That patch  is the only way to compile
Inkscape with poppler >= 0.12.2 at the moment and is used in Inkscape
trunk too (but there it now conditionally tests for the installed
poppler version - added in r9217 and improved in r9231. This is what
comment #19 talks about).
 the one from comment #4 - I don't know what the variations of it
which are used by some linux distributions do differently.
