[Gambas-bugtracker] Bug #1560: gb.pdf fails to load every time libpoppler is updated

When you recompile Gambas, it automatically links to the current version 
of libpoppler (when you autoreconf all), so you run the risk of 
incompatible apis any way.

One solution would be to have Gambas link to /usr/lib/libpoppler.so.

On my system, there are 3 versions of libpoppler:

/usr/lib/libpoppler.so   symlink to...
/usr/lib/libpoppler.so.86  symlink to...
/usr/lib/libpoppler.so.86.0.0  the actual file
