Hi all,

with the help of Richard Stonehone, a new version of PDFKit was created: version 0.9.0. PDFkit was essentially in an abandoned state and did not build on several platforms and had other problems.

GWorkspace's PDF content inspector needs PDFKit and is thus a useful dependency.

The key point is the upgrade from xpdf 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 which provides many rendering fixes, better compatibility with newer PDF versions and security fixes.

The build system was upgraded too:
- better configure system
- fixes to pass compiler, includes and library options which were unreliable
- several defaults and OS version detection so that PDFKit defaults without further options on many default OSs

I created a WIKI entry for PDFKit:
