I am afraid I have no access to other variants of systems.

It is a lot easier than I thougt ...

Ok, I personally have no need to use HARU PDF at the moment. I could
leave it for an updated version of the port ;-)
Another idea for an updated port version would be the use of unicode.

Yes, I will a Makefile without this option.
Thank you again, Eygene. I will now prepare for submitting a PR with
this new port.
