Xpdf is another viable option for reading PDF files.  And the keys
caused the desired function as i pressed even w/o reading the man
page or similar on the first time use.  Though i would have
preferred "=" to decrease the magnification (on US keyboard) instead
of "shift+=" for "+", i am not complaining.

While there is text finding capability in xpdf (which gv lacks), gv
shows the page borders by use of white & grey colors, which xpdf
does not (seem to).  Xpdf paints everything in white inside its
window which was enlarged more than the page size.
