fbpdf does not hardcode /usr/lib directly but uses mupfd's pkg-config files:

$ pkg-config --libs mupdf
-L/usr/lib -lmupdf -lfreetype -lopenjp2 -lcrypto

Reassigning to app-text/mupdf maintainer.

Wrong path seems to come from mupdf-1.10a-add-desktop-pc-xpm-files.patch patch:

    app-text/mupdf: security bump to 1.17.0
    * Debundle dev-lang/mujs again for the
      security bug (bundled copy is probably OK
      in terms of release mujs, but not a new bug
    * Document bundled libs with references
      to check when bumping. Useful for both
      security@ and the maintainer.
    * Include extra Debian patches for improved
      cross-compilation support (mostly pkg-config).
    * Fix existing patch to respect libdir in pkgconfig
    * Fix missing || dies.
    Package-Manager: Portage-3.0.2, Repoman-2.3.23
