app-text/diff-pdf: new package to visually compare two PDF files.
This has been an open request (and desire of mine) for a while, but the older releases depended on the deprecated 2.8 slot of wxGTK. However a new release was recently made with all of the upstream improvements from the past few years, so it is now possible to package this properly. Here it is. Thanks to Erik Quaeghebeur who opened the package request bug, supplied an ebuild, and helped me do some testing.

+DESCRIPTION="A simple tool for visually comparing two PDF files"
+# The COPYING.icons file states that two icons were taken from
+# version 2.16.5 of GTK+, which is licensed LGPL-2+.
+# The build system checks for "poppler-glib", which is provided only
+# when app-text/poppler is built with USE=cairo. Moreover the glib ABI
+# of poppler is relatively stable, and I can only assume that diff-pdf
+# uses that rather than the low-level API. Since the
+# subslot on app-text/poppler is ONLY for the low-level API, we
+# therefore don't need a subslot dependency on app-text/poppler.
+# Since diff-pdf.cpp includes glib.h directly, I've included
+# dev-libs/glib as an explicit dependency. Ditto for x11-libs/cairo.
