error indexing pdf files

I've got swish-e running on a redhat 8 box, and I've got a configuration
file set to spider a website housed on a different server. This server has
pdf files they want indexed. So, in the config file, I put this:
FileFilter .pdf /var/www/cgi-bin/search/filter-bin/

When I run swish-e to spider the site, I get this error each time it comes
across a pdf file:

Failed close on pipe to pdfinfo for ./swishspider@15640.contents: 11 at
/var/www/cgi-bin/search/filter-bin/ line 53.

Any ideas?
