No. Never though of that. And yes, it will show the same problems.

The only real problem is the (missing) private member outline in
PDFDoc.h, as it changes the size of a PDFDoc object.

This should fix it (and it also moves the member to the end of the
class to make error catching easier):

Yes. But let's at least keep -DPDF_PARSER_ONLY, please.
