Just sent ;)

There are two patches that I didn't send via e-mail:

The problem is that SVG files often have lines bigger than 998 chars,
with is the limit that e-mails usually accept (and VGER enforces).

We need some sort of script to break long lines. I remember that I
wrote one once, but need to seek for it, as it is not at the
usual places.

Those two patches are required for PDF build to work without errors
on Ubuntu 17.04. The problem there is that ImageMagick is a way
more pedantic there than on other distros, and don't support
several atributes that inkscape add. I had to use some tools to
filter out those arguments (svgo, scour) and even manually replace
font-family there, for it to properly recognize the SVG contents.

What's funny is that ImageMagick version on Ubuntu is newer
than the one in Fedora 26:

ubuntu17.04$ dpkg -l imagemagick
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Architecture Description
ii imagemagick 8: amd64 image manipulation programs -- binaries

fedora25$ rpm -q ImageMagick

fedora26$ rpm -q ImageMagick

Perhaps some regression?
