 This is not mentioned or badly, in the doc, htdig doesn't call by default
 acroread anymore but xpdf (in the way arguments are passed to it ) that means
 that is you want to use acroread instead you should use
 pdf_parser: /path/to/acroread -toPostscript -pairs
 untested!! but no reason it should not work !!!;-)

 I'm not so anxious as everything seems now to be ok ;-) but I've the same pb.
