Acrobat7 is in the ports tree.
Assuming you do not have an earlier version of Acrobat Reader installed,
then all you have to do to install Acrobat Reader 7 on your FreeBSD
# cd /usr/ports/print/acroread7
# make install
It above will automagically take care of everything for you. You will
probably want to make sure that your ports tree is up to date before
trying to install Acroread7. Refer to the handbook for more information:
