pdf2svg on Centos 6.2 (powerfull toy)

To understand about pdf2svg, please visit author site on cityinthesky.co.uk and download the latest source code to compile, in my case it is pdf2svg-0.2.1.tar.gz And follow instruction there to compile the source code,
Extract it
tar -zxvf pdf2svg-0.2.1.tar.gz
Go to extracted directory
cd pdf2svg-0.2.1
Do configure
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
And make
in this step im not so successful, there is warning like this
pdf2svg.c:152: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘free’
BUT i ignore it, just try my luck :D Final step is
make install
And check
which pdf2svg
giving me result
How to use Simple enough, just follow author website example (again)
pdf2svg pdf_testpage.pdf pdf_testpage.svg
now you can open pdf_testpage.svg on inkscape with all converted fonts (Yes !!! converted) and save it as eps file to open using Adobe Illustrator.
