Installation of MuPDF

First, fix the Makefile to link properly with the shared library:

sed -i '/MU.*_EXE. :/{
        s/\(.(MUPDF_LIB)\)\(.*\)$/\2 | \1/
        N
        s/$/ -lmupdf -L$(OUT)/
        }' Makefile

Install MuPDF by running the following commands:

cat > user.make << EOF &&
USE_SYSTEM_FREETYPE := yes
USE_SYSTEM_HARFBUZZ := yes
USE_SYSTEM_JBIG2DEC := no
USE_SYSTEM_JPEGXR := no # not used without HAVE_JPEGXR
USE_SYSTEM_LCMS2 := no # need lcms2-art fork
USE_SYSTEM_LIBJPEG := yes
USE_SYSTEM_MUJS := no # build needs source anyways
USE_SYSTEM_OPENJPEG := yes
USE_SYSTEM_ZLIB := yes
USE_SYSTEM_GLUT := no # need freeglut2-art fork
USE_SYSTEM_CURL := yes
USE_SYSTEM_GUMBO := no
EOF

export XCFLAGS=-fPIC          &&
