Attempting the first port failed - 

The entire FreeBSD installation was recently done - accomplished
from an older 6.2 ISO - so I decided to do a portupgrade of linux-base.
I was then able to install the missing ports you suggested, and
-presto-, acroread is working fine.

Thanks for your help Boris.
