same issue here...get the SRPM from Fedora-7 and rebuild that...that's
how I solved the problem.

Has any consideration been given to adding pdftk to Livna or something
similar? It's a fairly widely-used program and not having it available in a
current repository is, frankly, a bit of a scary outlook for the future.

I agree with you, Frank, but no Livna rpm for pdftk.

There's actually now no reason it can't be added back into Fedora. The
issue was the licensing of iText, on which pdftk depends. iText was
pulled from the fedora repos after F-7, but could now be re-added, as
long as an up to date version was packaged, and then pdftk could be
added back to the Fedora repo. It just needs someone to do the work.

Now there's a bit of good news.

The most logical person to handle this would be whoever did it up until it was
removed before as he/she obviously has both the experience and knowledge
necessary to do the job, and had sufficient interest in it as well.

Who would that be, and has that person been approached?

I believe that pdftk 1.41 will be unbuildable under
gcc 4.3.x in fedora as it was on Darwin fink. This issue
is...

http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=35689

and the final analysis was that pdftk needed to be
changed to no longer use c++ i/o with java execeptions
being enabled.
