The /usr/ports/print/acroread9 port is not usable due to the lack of support in the FreeBSD Linux emulator for the inotify_init syscall.
I would suggest that either the port be marked "broken" or some other suitable label so that potential end users do not waste their time in a futile attempt to get the port working only to then discover that it is not going to happen; or update the FreeBSD Linux emulator to properly handle the inotify_init syscall.
Attempt to run the application.
Apparently, it requires updating the FreeBSD Linux emulator to handle the inotify_init syscall.
