Your attached file ggv appears to be an error message from Ghostscript
about a file "book.pdf".

Acroread and gv can both read pdf files well, and both are available as
ports and packages.

PDFs can be created with OpenOffice.  Many programs can create
Postscript files; when you "print to file", you will usually get a
Postscript file as output, and can read it with gv.

Hope this helps!
