This change causes evince segfault when showing properties of
some PDF files. To avoid this, evince must handle ``linearized''
property as boolean.

Fix: This fix is borrowed from
Since poppler in FreeBSD is now 0.18.0, #ifdef's are not required.
This fix should be removed when evince is updated to 3.x.
How-To-Repeat: Download a PDF file from
and open it with evince.
Choose Properties from File menu.
