This might be a sed(1) portability issue.

pdfpic.tmac does a pretty hairy thing.

.  ec @

(Quick *roff background: `ec` means "change (or reset) the *roff escape
character" and `sy` means "run the C library's `system()` function.  So
after the comment, the backslashes we see above are "real" and go to "sh
-c" arguments.)

If you can try to run that same pipeline on an OpenIndiana system--my
guess is that _any_ PDF input file will do--and let me know what sort of
diagnostics and exit status you get, it would help me track this down.

Given past experiences with Solaris sed, I'm expecting trouble
there--maybe the foregoing needs to be rewritten with '[0-9.]' instead
of '[[:digit:].]'.

Or, of course, if someone has an OpenIndiana shell account they can toss
me for an hour or two, I'm happy to undertake this myself.

I hadn't even heard of OmniOS before, but I already have one good thing
to say about it.  ;-)
