xpdf in CentOs

I wanted Xpdf on my Centos machine, but I could not find a binary that had the newest patch level. So I used http://mbrisby.blogspot.com/2007/06/xpdf.html and extended it. I respect poppler and just add the program xpdf. Further I patch some known bugs.
Download the source rpm here : xpdf-3.02-5.src.rpm

Thank you Carl for the nice spec file. Here is my extended one.

Xpdf is an open source viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF)
files. (These are also sometimes also called 'Acrobat' files, from
the name of Adobe's PDF software.) The Xpdf project also includes a
PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript converter, and various other

Xpdf runs under the X Window System on UNIX, VMS, and OS/2. The non-X
components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) also run on Win32 systems and
should run on pretty much any system with a decent C++ compiler.

Xpdf is designed to be small and efficient. It can use Type 1 or
TrueType fonts.
