Use public poppler API
|Reported by:||wiz||Owned by:||warmerdam|
gdal uses the xpdf compatibility API provided by poppler.
However, upstream poppler sees this as "unsupported" and changes it when and how they want, see e.g. https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/7033
Their view is that consumers should use one of the public APIs, i.e. the glib, qt4, qt5, or cpp ones.
Please switch gdal to use one of those. If the API provided by upstream does not fulfill gdal's needs, upstream is willing to talk (https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/poppler).
(I'm not upstream, I'm just a packager that would like to reduce future breakage.)
