Bug Description

After latest edgy upgrade (10/11/2006) pdflatex stopped working.
Upon compilation of any file containing a PDF figure it stops with the message:
pdflatex: symbol lookup error: pdflatex: undefined symbol: _ZN4Dict3addERK10UGooStringP6Object

A quick Google search found the possible culprit in the poppler library (see http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.devel.bugs.general/78641 )

The latest log on my system is:
poppler (0.5.4-0ubuntu2) edgy; urgency=low

  * debian/control.in:
    - Build-Depends on libglade2-dev to fix the build

Causes FTBFS all over the place through texinfo breakage.

   * No-change upload to build against current Poppler. This resolves the
     'undefined symbol: _ZN4Dict3addERK10UGooStringP6Object' pdfetex failure
     (which breaks texinfo, which in turn causes various FTBFSes).

The same issue is found in texlive. Most likely a rebuild will fix that, too.

Just rebuilt texlive-bin and now everything works again.
