Sorry , 
I don't know where I had my mind 
BuildRequires: gcc
BuildRequires: gcc-java
BuildRequires: libgcj
BuildRequires: libgcj-devel
BuildRequires: gcc-c++
#Requires: jre-gcj
Requires: libstdc++ libgcj

so I was trying rebuild pdftk-1.44-11.fc19 with openjdk , when I mixed
up things compiling pdftk.spec ends up with 

attachments.cc:33:21: fatal error: gcj/cni.h: No such file or directory
#include <gcj/cni.h>
                     ^
when I saw that pdftk have a major update, I though in a miracle :)
