I don't know for sure. The problem was that acroread switched to use  
libcups, and when trying to dlopen() it, it fails. I haven't  
investigated this, so it may be a problem the way acroread installs  
the lib, or because of missing dependencies in the linux_base (we will  
get a new default linux_base "soon", we're running experimental builds  
on the ports cluster currently), or because of something else.
