Thanks for your input, Fernando. I have commited LO 3.6.0. Like you, I 
couldn't get LO to build with system Poppler. I tried both version 0.20.2 and 
0.20.3. It's a unit test (sdext_pdfimport.test) that fails, but the error 
message isn't particularly helpful:

.....
tests.cxx:132:Assertion
Test name: N12_GLOBAL__N_18PDFITestE::testXPDFParser
assertion failed
- Expression: rtl::math::approxEqual(m_aHyperlinkBounds.X1,34.7 ) && 
rtl::math:
:approxEqual(m_aHyperlinkBounds.Y1,386.0) && 
rtl::math::approxEqual(m_aHyperlin
kBounds.X2,166.7) && rtl::math::approxEqual(m_aHyperlinkBounds.Y2,406.2)
- Correct hyperlink bounding box
.....

I couldn't find any useful info on this on the web, so I decided to use the 
internal copy of Poppler for now.

Concerning krb5 and gssapi, I don't have them either, but the "without" 
switches weren't necessary.

I also included a patch to fix building with Boost 1.50.

I agree with you on this, so I removed the last ".4".

I don't have CUPS, so I built with --disable-cups. Now, if someone with CUPS 
1.6+ could test building LO...
