but a dependency of ~1G for a 111.5 KiB application is not what I am expecting.
Well, apparently it builds upon (PDF)latex.
That’s probably one of the reasons why it is so small…
Maybe I just have to give it a miss then.
If you don’t use (La)TeX for anything else it might be overkill.
Maybe you should describe what you are looking for?
Probably someone can suggest a different tool suited for the job.
Btw, the PDFjam homepage states this:
An alternative set of PDF manipulation tools, which are java-based, is provided by the Multivalent project. They do much the same things as pdfjam, and quite a bit more. Hyperlinks don’t seem to be preserved there either, though, when n-upping a document.

Depending on what you need, psutils might suffice.
«PDFjam is a small collection of shell scripts that work similarly to
the well known psutils (psmerge, psnup). They provide a simple interface
to some of the functionality of the pdfpages package for pdfLaTeX. At
present, the utilities available are pdfnup, pdfjoin, and pdf90. PDFjam
depends on a working installation of (pdf)LaTeX. - pdfnup puts multiple
document pages together on one physical page at a reduced size - pdfjoin
concatenates multiple PDF documents - pdf90 rotates the pages of PDF
PDFjam itself is small, but it requires (pdf)LaTeX, which is huge.
psutils instead is small.
