A few points to consider:
1) the ht://Dig configure script currently expects to find acroread in
/usr/local/bin, and sets that as the default location even if it doesn't
find it. You need to set pdf_parser to indicate an alternate location,
and you must include the two options it needs.
2) a bug in Acrobat 4 makes it a poor choice for a pdf parser for htdig.
Its -pairs option causes a segmentation violation, so you'd need to kludge
up a wrapper script for it so it could work without that option.
3) a lot of users have had more success using pdftotext as part of an
external parser, rather than using acroread.
