For libstdc++.so.5 on FC3 you need compat-libstdc++-8-, on FC4
you need compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4.i386.rpm

Alternatively, iff the system were LSB v3.0 certified and acroread were
LSB v3.0 certified, then everything would work out of the box.  :-)


FYI, LSB v3.0 introduces a standardized C++ ABIs for Linux applications
to stabilize on.


But this topic is a different FSG workgroup...  ;-)
