Safe for sure, but you have to check whether it compiles. It depends on
the version of libpoppler present in Ubuntu Gutsy.

For libpoppler 0.4.X (X <= 8) take the etch variant
For libpoppler 0.4.9 or 0.5.X you have to unpack the source package,
	change the debian/patches/series file to list the
	libpoppler-0.5 patch and comment the libpoppler-0.4 and -0.6
For libpoppler 0.6.X take the sid variant (available at the same
	location as the etch variant but with terminal
	instead of luatex)

Sorry for being of not so much help, but I don't have a gutsy around and
I never could find out which versions of Ubuntu ship which versions of

Best wishes
