 Debian uses texlive that comes with a recent thumbpdf version. Like NetBSD, 
FreeBSD is still using teTeX with the same old thumbpdf version. That's a good 
point of comparision.
 The error results from a "wrong" intermediate file "thumbpdf.pdf". The second 
line is expected to be the "obj" line.
 FreeBSD thumbpdf.pdf:
 4 0 obj <<
 /Length 54
 Pkgsrc thumbpdf.pdf:
 10 0 obj <<
 The second line is a comment and not expected by thumbpdf. I tried to 
reproduce it with a minimal .tex file:
 $ cat hello.tex
 hello world
 $ pdftex hello.tex
 Same here. FreeBSD generates the obj line on line 2 and Pkgsrc on line 3.
 Not sure how to fix that. Either convince pdftex to generate pdf-1.4 files or 
make thumbpdf read over the second line (grep for "#get obj" in
