Yes, BATCH=yes was in /etc/make.conf. I commented it out last night and 
reran 'make install' in /print/acroread7. It went through just like 
it's supposed to. This is the one time that BATCH didn't do me any 
favors. I'll be remembering from now on to comment it out if I come 
across a file that says it's interactive.

Thank you.
