Thanks, this worked for me (with SCIM). Now I can use all keyboards in
acroread8, but in my case the presence of these libs raises a problem
with acroread7. Notes:

1. I tested scim-tables-imengine and scim-kmfl-imengine only;

2. [unimportant] It creates empty icon which behaves as new default
   keyboard, but remains besides existing default (neutral)
   keyboard-icon (English/Keyboard in my case);

3. Now acroread7 doesn't work (for me at least), with all SCIM-related
   environment variables schemes. It just returns me back to the shell
   prompt without any error message;

4. However, if I use the environment scheme I suggested in my previous
   mail and change GTK_IM_MODULE/XMODIFIERS in acroread7 startup
   script as proposed, all applications work, and SCIM in them.
