'gb.pdf' has been deprecated. It means that it is still present, but it 
will not be developed anymore. 'gb.poppler' aims at replacing it.

As 'gb.poppler' uses the high-level Poppler API, it should not break as 
often as 'gb.pdf' that was based on the low-level Poppler API.

I strongly suggest that you think about using gb.poppler instead, as 
gb.pdf may not compile anymore in future releases of your preferred 
distribution because of these breakages.
