After jkim's commits, I was able to install and use print/acroread7. No
problems so far, only messages in dmesg (I guess about those yet

linux: pid 29367 (pwd): syscall fstatat64 not implemented
linux: pid 29370 (pwd): syscall fstatat64 not implemented
linux: pid 29373 (pwd): syscall fstatat64 not implemented
