[Slackbuilds-users] pdftk-1.12 from SBo fails on -current

Seems like I'm in a little bit over my head in trying to get my old 
pdftk.Slackbuild to compile (and run) on -current.

The complete build has been on the web for a while and works fine on 11.0, but 
fails to build and run since the major changes.

Does anyone have any insight on how to fix this? Or recommendations for a 
slightly more up-to-date replacement that is capable of working with PDFs 
version 1.6 (Adobe 7.0+) as well?

Thanks in advance - I guess I should've been able to fix this as the original 
SlackBuild author, but I don't speak Java and don't even know where to start 

It fails with this message:
