I use PDF SAM Basic for this, it's a Java application and it works great 
under FreeBSD.

You can download the "Portable Archive" for Linux 
(https://pdfsam.org/download-pdfsam-basic/), remove its 'runtime' 
subdirectory (Linux and FreeBSD already have openjdk available, 3rd 
-party applications shouldn't ship with a JRE, anyway) and customize 
(read: simplify) bin/pdfsam.sh.

I haven't created a port for it because I didn't know other people would 
be interested, and also because I don't know the impacts of the GNU 
AFFERO v3 license it uses, but it would technically be easy.

I work with hundreds of PDFs each day so I cannot work within a CLI to manipulate the pages. I do a lot of extracting of pages into a new PDF by dragging and dropping pages from PDF software to a GUI file manager such as Thunar.
