Yes, the GDAL PDF driver can be used to add georeferencing info to an existing 
PDF file. This is for example used in MapServer developement version in its PDF 
output. This is a matter of opening the file in update mode, and setting the 
appropriate info with the SetGeoTransform() and SetProjection() methods.
