modifying xpdf

The point to start is the anti-aliased rendering that's already
there.  This needs to be modified to use a "spilling" filter instead
of an averaging one.

It complains about not finding freetype.. Funny, because I have it

Maybe a debian issue.  Let's use the deb sources instead.

All the image processing code is in splash/

Skimming the code it doesn't seem AA is handled by by simply
oversampling and downsampling the whole at the end.  It's woven all
over the place.

From this I conclude it's probably not a good idea to go poking in the
Splash code..  The simplest approach seems to be to render to 300dpi
and postprocess the image, then downsample.
