[sword-devel] pdf2xml

I have modified pdf2xml and created a Makefile for it.

The modifications include:
1. compile and link against system libpng rather than a separate copy of it
2. modify to use libpoppler rather than separate copy of xpdf.
libpoppler is the gpl-licensed version of xpdf. xpdf-dev is not
available at least for Ubuntu and I suspect others as well.

The project home for this is here [1]. You can grab the source from here [2] .

To check out the source, use bzr like so:

bzr branch lp:pdf2xml

This should build with MinGW as well, though I haven't yet tried it.
If anyone is interested in using this on Windows, let me know and I'll
create binaries.
