I was not aware of `pdftopng', and with good reason: it doesn't exist on

  │ $ locate pdftopng
  │ /home/bitouze/texlive-svn/Build/source/libs/xpdf/xpdf-3.04/doc/pdftopng.1
  │ /home/bitouze/texlive-svn/Build/source/libs/xpdf/xpdf-3.04/doc/pdftopng.cat
  │ /home/bitouze/texlive-svn/Build/source/libs/xpdf/xpdf-3.04/xpdf/pdftopng.cc
  │ /home/bitouze/texlive-svn/Master/bin/win32/pdftopng.exe
  │ /home/bitouze/texlive-svn/Master/texmf-dist/doc/support/wintools/pdftopng.pdf

As it seems to come from `xpdf' which is available, I guess, mainly for
Un*x systems, why doesn't ir exist on Linux?
