Check /usr/ports/UPDATING
It says:
   "The command filename is ${PREFIX}/bin/acroread as before..."

   AFFECTS: users of print/acroread7 and the localized versions
   AUTHOR: hrs at

   installation directory of print/acroread7 and the slave ports
   have been changed to ${PREFIX}/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/${ADOBE_LANG}.
   NLD,NOR,PTB,SUO,SVE and represents language used in the UI (FRA means
   French version and it is installed by french/acroread, for example).
   To configure the UI language, navigate to 
   Application Language, set it to "Choose at application startup" and
   restart the program.

   The command filename is ${PREFIX}/bin/acroread as before (this is
   a script installed by print/acroreadwrapper now), and if multiple
   versions are installed, one of them will be selected according to
   ${ADOBE_LANG} environment variable.  If ${ADOBE_LANG} is not set,
   it will be automatically set by using ${LANG}; this means when
   LANG=fr_FR.ISO8859-15, ADOBE_LANG will be FRA and the French version
   will be invoked by ${PREFIX}/bin/acroread.  You can set ADOBE_LANG
   manually, too.

   Also, if you want to activate the PDF plugin, use --install-plugin
   option in ${PREFIX}/bin/acroread.  For more detail, see
