When you compiled it yourself, did it find Qt4 and build the  
libpoppler-qt4 interface? If not, you might still be using the other  
version of that.

Here's what I have on Ubuntu. Note that it's using only Ubuntu's  
poppler, even though that's fairly old (0.6.4); it can still build and  
run OK, although there have been lots of improvements to poppler since
