Hans, I've adapted make/fakefop to your make/otp.mk.in changes:

This fixes the regression, but I'm seeing warning/error messages from
$ make/fakefop -c foo -fo foo -pdf test.pdf
$ mupdf test.pdf
error: cannot recognize xref format: '['
error: cannot read trailer
warning: trying to repair broken xref

Also, pdf.js does not seem to render it at all.

Any idea what part of a placeholder PDF is broken?
