Hello Frank,

Thank you for trying to help. Your suggestion downloads 
AdobeReader_enu-7.0.5-1.i386.tar.gz, I think I want the 7.0.1-1 
version. I finally ended up with everything I could find, put it in 
distfiles, also in distfiles/acroread and as far as I can tell, I 
cannot get past the message "this is an interactive port" error1 - not 
exactly the message but it gives you the idea. I then blew everything 
off and started over, same thing. I think there is a document that I 
need to agree to that is just not there, I know it used to be for older 

I've decided, in the interest of getting on with other things like xpdf, 
kpf, gpdf, ghostview will do what I want. therefore, except for the 
port acroread7, everything acroread is deinstalled. At  some time later 
I'll try it again.

Thank you again.
