Anyhoo!  While trying to run an app I maintain (equalx) I realized that the
latest upgrade to 14.2 (which was current back those many moons ago) kind

originally linked library, but now I have libpoppler.so.62.  Sooo, in the
offchance that certain particular routines in a library for a piece of
software wouldn't need an upgrade, what could be searched in the Makefile
to force it to compile using the non-linked library in order to diff and

Please, for the love of Pete, I'm not trying to rustle any one's jimmies if
there'd be bad juju in modifying a slackbuild for something like that.  I'm

Have a happy!

I'm a little teacup short and stout...
