As the title says, BePDF is already installed by default on the nightly builds, but "bepdf" still shows up as an installable package in "installoptionalpackage -l".

BePDF is not part of the nightly profiles.

I know what the problem is.

Haiku is reading my mounted drives and just loading a copy out of my backups.

Personally I think this is BAD. I don't want it reading my other hard drives and launching a random old copy it finds on another drive. If I don't have it installed on my system, it shouldn't run it.

Maybe I'll add this to my other ticket about the mess Haiku makes of the "Open with..." menu by doing similar filesystem scanning etc.

See #8799 for more unpleasant side effects of this "helpful" behavior.
