That's more than what you get on FreeBSD-current (there it is a
problem with symbol versioning & the linuxpluginwrapper).

The plugin runs as native code. So as long as acroread started by hand
is able to display a PDF, it should not be caused by the linux base.
And I'm not aware of problems with the new linux base.

Would you please update linuxpluginwrapper and check the example
libmap.conf for changes.
