I also had problems building xpdf.

Now, this happened a few months ago so my memmory is a bit hazy, but as
far as I can remember, some parts of the package built well, but xpdf
itself failed. Investigation showed that it belived Mottif was missing.
I was puzzled by this as I have installed Lesstif. Turned out that
somehow Xm/Print.h got included and it (tried to) include
X11/extensions/Print.h which was missing.

So I just took a copy from the previous build. :)

It works fine now, aldough I have not tried printing from xpdf.
