Looks correct, that is libpdf.a is in there. I would suspect that the 
problem is that libchart was built to link against the shared version of 
libpdf. You can verify what it needs by using the "ldd" command, 
http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man1/ldd.1.html -- If that's the case 
then you'll have to find/build that shared libpdf dependency.
