Hi Peter,

it seems the change to kpse-poppler-flags.m4:
@@ -33,11 +33,10 @@ AC_DEFUN([KPSE_POPPLER_OPTIONS],
 # ----------------------
-if $PKG_CONFIG poppler --atleast-version=0.12; then
-  POPPLER_VERSION='-DPOPPLER_VERSION=\"'`$PKG_CONFIG poppler --modversion`'\"'
+if $PKG_CONFIG poppler --atleast-version=0.18; then
+  POPPLER_INCLUDES=`$PKG_CONFIG poppler --cflags`
   POPPLER_LIBS=`$PKG_CONFIG poppler --libs`
 elif test "x$need_poppler:$with_system_poppler" = xyes:yes; then
-  AC_MSG_ERROR([did not find poppler-0.12 or better])
+  AC_MSG_ERROR([did not find poppler-0.18 or better])

is a good idea, but xetex somehow depends on POPPLER_VERSION which is
not any longer defined:
../../../texk/web2c/xetexdir/XeTeX_ext.c: In function ‘initversionstring’:
../../../texk/web2c/xetexdir/XeTeX_ext.c:204:13: error: ‘POPPLER_VERSION’ undeclared (first use in this function)
../../../texk/web2c/xetexdir/XeTeX_ext.c:204:13: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in

which comes from

Best wishes

The prominent stain on a man's trouser crotch seen on his return from
the lavatory. A botley proper is caused by an accident with the push
taps, and should not be confused with any stain caused by insufficient
waggling of the willy.
