    56565. We're now moving to compiling up Xpdf-tools ourselves using CASCADE-MAKE, which we have so far got to successfully compile statically on Linux (LSB environment inclusive) to build working binaries.  
    5757 
    58 On Mac, I've been unable to get it to produce statically linked libraries: at this stage they're dynamically linked.

     586. On Mac, it's not possible to produce statically linked libraries, they're dynamically linked against system libraries, but at least use the statically linked libraries for libpng, zlib, libjpeg and freetype that we compile up.

     607. IMPORTANT: 
     61- for Windows we use the 32 bit precompiled binaries downloaded from the XPDF website. These work on 32 and 64 bit Windows and we don't compile them up ourselves. 
     62They're put into winbin on trac and end up in GS2/gs2build's GSDLOS/bin folder. 
     63- for Linux, we build 32 bit binaries on the 32 bit LSB VM. 
     64- for mac, we build 64 bit binaries. 
     65 
     66We build the binaries by running ./CASCADE-MAKE.sh on the xpdf-tools gs2-extension. 
     67We then run "./CASCADE-MAKE.SH makedist", which generates the xpdf-tools tarball which we extract into GS2/gs2build's GSDLOS/bin folder.
