I've tried also to start acrobat.jar directly, also with "java -jar 
acrobat.jar". I got the same errors. I've read your link also. That 
means that this problem is more than 5 years old!!! After reading the 
link, I was remebering that I was not able to install the dependend 
jre-1.1.x-port, because therefore it is necessary to install compat-3.x 
port also, but it was forbidden for FreeBSD 6.x!!! That was the reason 
I installed the diablo-x-port! After that I tried to start 
AcrobatViewer with the gotten errors described in my first e-mail.

It seems that the port acrobatviewer-1.1 should only be guilty for 
FreeBSD 5.x. That let me come to the conclusion: Kill this port from 
the ports-tree!
