Question can't index pdf using pdftotext

My server is running php 4.3.8 on a linux system, and I am trying to search pdfs using the pdftotext external binary.

I am able to get phpdig to search html files. Pdftotext converts pdfs and places a txt file in the same directory, when run from the command line, but I haven't been able to configure phpdig to index a linked pdf file on my website.

I have followed all the instructions on the thread "External Binaries Problem Checklist", and have inserted the recommended echo statements in spider.php and robot_functions.php. The output when reindexing shown below.

Thanks very much for any assistance.
