Yeh!! I am just running xorg and not XFree86. Do you think I need to
install XFree86? Also I installed acroread from the ports. Should not
it fetch all the dependancies?

Regarding linux compatibility:

[bsdboy at phoenix ~]$ cat /etc/rc.conf | grep linux

So, yes, its enabled. Thanks for replying back.
