"Quicker" cannot be an excuse to continue to use a program which have
several severe security holes....

I strongly believe print/acroread and print/acroread5 should be
removed from pkgsrc just because:
- they have security holes
- and they are not maintained any more
- and there are many alternatives programs.

BTW, I'm using xpdfview now.
