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.
4 0 obj <<
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
$ 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 thumbpdf.pl).
