Fink has other great advantage: placeholders, which are very simple
documents that tell Fink you already have an installation of a
package (for example, ghostscript, teTeX) another package depends on.
So you don't need an extra installation of ghostscript to install
xpdf, just the system-ghostscript8 placeholder.
And as placing its binaries before the System ones, you just have to
comment out the Fink line
in your .profile or .bash_profile and in X11 Application menu put
source /sw/bin/init.sh ; xpdf
So you will open xpdf from within X11. Of course, you'll have to
uncomment the Fink line to update Fink or any of its packages.
