Package: geomview
Version: 1.9.4-1
Severity: normal

geomview depends on xpdf.  That's not the only (X11-based) PDF viewer
and I suspect geomview do not need anything specific to xpdf (do any
such feature even exist?).

Also, I have heard rumors that xpdf is being phased out.

All in all, please consider adding fallback-dependency on pdf-viewer.
And also consider changing to depend on evince (and still fallback-
depend on pdf-viewer).
