        Even better (I think _much_ better) is ghostscript 5.10. Ghostscript
        plus 'gv' (which comes with 4.0) make an extremely good pdf viewing
        system.

        Ghostscript 4.03 comes included with BSD/OS 4.0 so you should be able
        to view pdf files right awaw. Some of the more complex files might
        require you to grab ghostscript 5.10 from http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/

        It builds cleanly with no changes under 4.0 except for the usual
        configuation choices (where to install, etc)
