8 From looking at the cups ebuild there is a configure option, so I don't
9 think it's that straightforward, but there might be a solution here.

13 We just rejoined the split poppler into one package again. So if you
14 are going to split it up again, you will have some explaining to do to
15 our users. I would like to prevent splitting, and see if we can fix maybe
16 the cups ebuild instead. Or maybe the gtk+ maintainers want to split
17 up their package... I understand they like that sort of thing.
