Downgrading to poppler-0.12.3-r3 fixes this.
gdb /usr/bin/pdflatex and running the tex file yields:
#0 0xb7b6d48b in strlen () from /lib/libc.so.6
#1 0xb7e72ba4 in GlobalParams::scanEncodingDirs() () from /usr/lib/libpoppler.so.5
#2 0xb7e72b3e in GlobalParams::GlobalParams(char const*) () from /usr/lib/libpoppler.so.5
I assume pdflatex is a symlink to pdftex from texlive-core? Have you tried rebuilding it?
And for good measure, please post emerge --info

Oops, I did rebuild dev-texlive/texlive-latex-2009 since pdflatex belongs to that but not texlive-core... When rebuilding that, the crash is fixed.
Thanks again and best regards,
