texlive issue when compiling fontconfig

I have texlive-formatsextra installed on my machine. I'm currently trying to compile fontconfig from git, and recieve the following error.

  GEN      fontconfig-user.pdf
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/catalog
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: /home/abc/Downloads/packages/fontconfig-git/src/fontconfig-git/doc/fontconfig-user.sgml
pdfjadetex: symbol lookup error: pdfjadetex: undefined symbol: _ZN5Array3getEiP6Objecti
make[3]: *** [Makefile:1329: fontconfig-user.pdf] Error 9

make: *** [Makefile:463: all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...

I traced pdfjadetex to the texlive package, which is included in the dependencies, and I do have it installed, so I'm not sure whats going on here. Whether this is an issue with texlive or fontconfig is where I'm stuck. Its been like this for a while now.I waited to see if it was just a bug upstream with fontconfig, but it hasn't been fixed for some time now.

Re: texlive issue when compiling fontconfig

Sounds like a partial update. What version of the texlive packages and what version of poppler?

Re: texlive issue when compiling fontconfig

Here are the texlive and poppler packages currently installed.

texlive-bin 2017.44590-2
texlive-core 2017.44918-1
texlive-formatsextra 2017.44177-2

I get a similar error when trying to compile zsh-git

Re: texlive issue when compiling fontconfig

popper-git. I think we've found the problem.

Re: texlive issue when compiling fontconfig

That's weird, it compiles now with the official package. Is there a bug upstream in poppler?

Re: texlive issue when compiling fontconfig

Poppler changes it's ABI all of the time. Trying to run the -git version would cause issues like this constantly. It's not a bug, it's just how upstream has decided to operate.
