using xpdf (pdfinfo actualy) with a pdf file I get:

[msql@chaos xpdf]$ pdfinfo ~/Backup/320051.pdf
Error: PDF file is encrypted and cannot be displayed
Error: * Decryption support is currently not included in xpdf
Error: * due to legal restrictions: the U.S.A. still has bogus
Error: * export controls on cryptography software.
Error: Couldn't read xref table
[msql@chaos xpdf]$

Is there a encryption patch somewhere?
The PDF *is* legal; I can read it with Acroread.
