Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2018-04-02 13:27:58 UTC
Are the xpdfopen utils still needed? pdfopen should be replaced by xdg-open, and pdfclose was never needed on Unix like systems.

If it turns out that they are still needed, utils/xpdfopen/ and utils/xpdfopen/xpdfopen-src/ both contain this line:

LDADD = $(X_LIBS) -lX11 -lXmu $(X_EXTRA_LIBS)

Looks like libXmu isn't actually needed. There is neither any X11/Xmu header file included in the sources, nor is there any DT_NEEDED tag for libXmu in the resulting binaries. So the Makefile could be patched, removing -lXmu.

In either case, the x11-libs/libXmu dependency could be removed from the ebuild, as these are the only two programs linking against libXmu.

Ping. Same issue still with texlive-core-2021-r1.
