Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-03-22 21:56:07 UTC
pdftk uses CNI and depends on iText.  It currently bundles it, since it needs to
recompile it using the old-style GCJ ABI.  Can the iText package provide an
old-style ABI library in addition to the BC ABI shared object it currently provides?

Comment 1 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-12 15:54:01 UTC
Actually, it should be sufficient to build iText with -fno-indirect-classes.

Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-12 16:07:48 UTC
Note that it's only worth doing this once 236224 is resolved.

Comment 3 Jochen Schmitt 2007-05-24 17:23:50 UTC
I have done some test to include the itext package instead of the bundled itext
from pdftk.

Unfrotunately; I have found out, that I need C-styled headers file and object
modules for acces to itext.

Comment 4 Anthony Green 2007-06-22 14:53:23 UTC
I've just removed the itext package due to licensing problems.
