I have reitiered pdftk for F-20 and rawhide. 

The rationals for this steps are:

1.) pdftk is a C++ programm which calls methods of a Java library called
iText. To do this, gcj with CNI support is required. The support of this
technology is discontinued in Fedora Linux. Therefore you can't make
any successfuls builds for pdftk on Fedora Linux anymore.

2.) pdftk2 may dempends of iText5 or later which is not provides on Fedora
during licensing issues.

Best Regards:

Jochen Schmitt
