After making this change I get the following warning when starting xpdf in an
xterm window:

QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-kbrown'

I googled the message, but none of the solutions appeared to apply.  Do you know
how to suppress this warning?  I assume it results from the fact that I'm not
working in a desktop environment.

Normally set to /run/user/$(id -u)/, sometimes .../$(id -un)/, created by first
app after login.
I have a postinstall script to create /run/{,blkid,lock,user}/ directories with
mode a+rwxt, remove /var/{run,lock} directories and create symlinks from those
to /run/{,lock}/, to provide a more normal Unix/Linux environment for ported apps.

 From https://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html:

Thanks for all the information, Brian, but I think you misunderstood the context of my question. I'm the maintainer of xpdf, and Yaakov suggested a modification to my .cygport file. This results in a warning (presumably when xpdf is not run under a desktop environment). I'm simply asking if there's an easy way to suppress the warning so that users aren't annoyed by it.
