Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Didn't even know this existed. I'm always trying to merge PDFs

DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

Looking at the documentation at https://github.com/johnwhitington/cpdf-source, we are going to require camlpdf and ocamlfind, OR by using the OPAM package manager. Note we already have ocaml packaged. Relevant text from readme:

Prerequisites to build

The OCaml compiler

http://ocaml.org

The camlpdf library

http://github.com/johnwhitington/camlpdf

The ocamlfind library manager

http://projects.camlcity.org/projects/findlib.html

If you are using the OPAM package manager:

http://opam.ocamlpro.com

these can be installed by:

opam install camlpdf

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
