The tendency to split packages is a debian/ubuntu thing that sometimes
catches users (and developers!) off guard if you're unaware of it -- the
primary reason, IIRC, is to allow people to save space by removing parts
of software they don't need. (For example, there are separate linux-
image- (kernel image only), linux-headers- (kernel headers only), and
linux-source- (kernel source only) packages in Ubuntu/Debian.) This is
useful for e.g. embedded systems (Debian targets, I think, about 11
archs; some of which are for smaller form factors) and live CDs/DVDs and
other places where space is tight.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/ provides an interface to allow searching for
existing packages, as well as the contents of existing packages. (For
Debian, http://packages.debian.org/ is similar -- AFAIK the two are
based on the same codebase.)

I found poppler-utils by searching for packages which contained
"pdftoabw" on that page.

Please update to version 2.6
