Thats consistent with what I saw back in May.  If you had "/usr/pkg/bin/lpr" 
in acroread's dialog box it would try to to cd to "/usr/pkg/bin" which on 
your problem machine would take it to "/emul/linux/usr/pkg/bin" and on the 
other machine to "/usr/pkg/bin", do a getcwd() and append lpr to the result 
to get the path it actually tries to use.  Why it bothers I don't know.
