This is covered by
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:LicensingGuidelines#Multiple_Licensing_S cenarios

Basically, you are encouraged to separate differently licensed pieces of
code into subpackages with different licensing. However, it is
sufficient to simply indicate all of the licenses in the License: tag
and include an explanation of which files in the binary package are
under which license. (Various methods for doing this are given in the
URL above.)

Not an actual answer to your question, but wouldn't the license of the PDF
plugin be GPLv3 only rather than (GPLv2 or GPLv3), considering that GIMP is
GPLv3+?
