Now the patch can't be applied, and USE_SYSTEM_LIBS breaks the build.

My build is done by:

It would only produce one shared library (, which contains the content of all libmupdf*.a archives.

Fixed at revision 23805.

This was very challenging. Upstream obviously never tested building and running using shared libraries. I had to hack the Makefile to get it to work with the shared library. I'll note that both Fedora and Arch do not uses the shared libraries.
