I'll revisit the issue when I come back from vacation. For some reason, I have always been able to compile the package without needing the -fPIC flag.

Is the -fPIC flag ever going to be added to this package?

severach: That would be wrong. You can compile and run pdftk successfully with, say, gcc-gcj 4.7, given you have the whole gcc toolchain in version 4.7 installed.

severach commented on 2016-08-16 13:54

Perhaps add version to gcc-gcj to ensure that old versions aren't used.

Ahh... now you've reminded me of the issue. I can't seem to install gcc-gcj at all. I wrote about it on the AUR for that here (search for rabarrett):

I seem stuck on that issue. Nothing I tried resolved it. The pastebin I linked to still shows the issue.

The package compiles just fine on my end too. The issue you're describing usually happens when you don't have matching versions of gcc and gcc-gcj. Could you check what version of each package you have installed?

pdftk-2.02-5 compiles in gcc-gcj-6.1.1-3 just fine here. Can you find the file /usr/include/c++/6.1.1/gcj/cni.h ?

Did this issue ever get fixed? When I try to update it, I still get an error that says "fatal error: gcj/cni.h: No such file or directory." I've been getting that for a few months now.

I can, but I'm curious as to why this flag seems necessary only on some machines. I could never reproduce this error on any of my machines.

I'll make sure this does not cause any side effects and change it later this week.
