If you're using the KDE poppler libs and headers, you probably don't  
have the optional "xpdf headers" that accompany poppler, so you'll  
need to comment out the option


in the .pro file. (This is noted on the wiki page, actually.)

Those are specific to where I have mingw installed (I'm now building  
with release 5.1.4 and gcc 4.4, not the older version that Qt  
bundles). As always, I assume you'll need to change them to suit your  
build environment.
