supp-pdf.mkii is loaded by pdftex.def, that is loaded by the
color package and the color package is loaded if hyperref has
seen option `colorlinks'.
  And pdftex.def uses \AtBeginDocument to load supp-pdf.mkii.

But the format pdfxmltex has not loaded neither color nor hyperref.
And the log file of debian that is shown for debian bug report 566591
only shows supp-pdf.mkii without hyperref and without color or pdftex.def.
But the .log file is generated by xmlto (I don't know it), that
seems to use a different format than TL's pdfxmltex.

Yours sincerely
