    652652XpdfTools' README lists which files need to be included as per its license when redistributing xpdf-tools binaries. 
    653653 
    654 Running "./CASCADE-MAKE.sh makedist" does some custom steps to create a distribution tarball of the xpdf-tools we compile up: 
    655 it creates a temporary xpdf-tools subdirectory and copies into it the GSDLOS/bin/pdf* statically linked binaries (or dynamic executables linked 
    656 against mostly static libraries in the case of Macs), the GSDLOS/man folder as well as the "redistribute" folder containing further compulsory 
    657 files as required by xpdf-tools' license. 
    658 This temporary xpdf-tools subfolder is then passed as the whitelist folder to the CASCADE-MAKE makedist command, and this folder and its 
    659 contents are then tarred up into the distribution tarball xpdf-tools-GSDLOS.tar.gz. Finally, the temporary xpdf-tools subfolder is deleted. 
     654Running "./CASCADE-MAKE.sh makedist" assembles a custom whitelist of files to include in the distribution tarball of the xpdf-tools we compile up. 
     655 
     656The files and folders into the distribution tarball xpdf-tools-GSDLOS.tar.gz are: 
     657- the GSDLOS/bin/pdf* statically linked binaries (or dynamic executables linked against mostly static libraries in the case of Macs), 
     658- the GSDLOS/man folder as well as the "licence-files" folder containing further compulsory files as required by xpdf-tools' license. 
     659 
     660Beware that the cascade-make makedist function always maintains the directory structure of folders but also files included in the whitelist. 
     661So when untarred, the folder xpdf-tools is produced with subfolders like linux/bin (containing the pdf* binaries), a linux/man subfolder and a 
     662licence-files subfolder.
