Got it thanks.

I see acroread is part of Solaris 10 and there is some grubby binary
wrapper called
pdflaunch which I'm not sure what it does. Moving the
/opt/sfw/bin/acroread to acroread5.0
and adding a symbolic link to 7.0 seems to have done the trick.

I guess Sun will eventually issue a Sol 10 patch for Acrobat to take
the old 5.0 out and pop
the new 7.0 in ?
