Either you use 'poppler-splash', and you can render the page, but it 
won't work in the new versions of poppler.

Either you use 'poppler-glib', and you have to render using Cairo, so 
Cairo becomes a requested depency, even if you just want to draw the 
page images with the QT library. (Same remark with 'poppler-qt5' and GTK+).

Or you can use 'poppler-cpp', but as that plugin is not finished, you 
won't have any information on the actions associated with table of 
contents items, making the table of contents useless.

As you can see, it's hard to make things worse! Is there a goal to make 
poppler usable one day?
