acroread fails to start

I'm trying to install acroread, after I updated to -CURRENT, but it
keeps on failing when I start it as per the following:

$ acroread

(acroread:8478): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion
`G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(acroread:8478): Pango-CRITICAL **: _pango_engine_shape_shape: assertion
`PANGO_IS_FONT (font)' failed

Pango-ERROR **: file shape.c: line 75 (pango_shape): assertion failed:
(glyphs->num_glyphs > 0)

I have tried to completely delete it and reinstall it from ports but
that never fixed it!

Any recommendations?
