 Thank you for the report.  In my environment,
 acroread8+GTK_IM_MODULE=xim+XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM works well, and when
 Linux does not exist, acroread8+GTK_IM_MODULE=scim does
 not load Linux and just gets hosed just after FreeBSD's loaded.

 Yes, by setting GTK_IM_MODULE=xim + XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM.  Linux is used at that time.

 Hmm, these two cases are different from me.  Let me investigate this
 further...  This problem is due to interaction between FreeBSD's gtk
 library and Linux's, so I am guessing there is consistency in some
 degree and want to figure out it.

 And honestly, I do not want to add a separate port that installs the
 Linux if possible because if the acroread8 port should
 depend on it or not is a moot point.

 Any other people can reproduce these symptoms?  I received both "OK"
 and "NG" reports when both GTK_IM_MODULE=xim and XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM
 are set at a time so far, and bit confused.
