I checked the permissions and directory names for everything under
/emul/linux on the failing machine and one where it works. The failing
machine has /emul/linux/usr/pkg, but I didn't see anything under it
that looked relevant. It has a few other extra directories, too, to
support some other linux applications such as firefox. Among the
common directories, the only difference I found was that the failing
machine's /emul/linux/root was mode 700 instead of 755. Since we
weren't running acroread as root, I doubt that that's relevant.
