As title says, I recently updated system and world in order to solve segfault, but Adobe Reader 9.5.5 still refuses to start. I found somewhere it may be outdated.
What else should I try instead remerging everything again, because I did it already?
I need acroread for printing PDF documents, mostly slides from lectures and this one does best when printing multiple pages (I print 4 on 1).
This is output:

Code:
gentoo% acroread
dirname: fehlender Operand
>>dirname --help<< liefert weitere Informationen.
zsh: segmentation fault   acroread


Code:
ldd /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread | grep not
libBIB.so => not found
   libBIBUtils.so => not found
   libACE.so => not found
   libAGM.so => not found
   libCoolType.so => not found
   libAXE8SharedExpat.so => not found
   libJP2K.so => not found
   libAdobeXMP.so => not found
   libicuuc.so.36 => not found
   libResAccess.so => not found


Thanks in advance.

It seems normal for acroread to crash with a sigsegv as acroread is a binary program,
we do not have the source code, so it crashes when run on a system which the binary
was not built for, such as using infinality or a different glibc version:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=488918

So I suggest giving up on acroread and trying other pdf viewers that
we have the source code for. For the printing you could try:

emerge -av app-text/qpdfview

then:

File -> Print
Options >>
Extended options
Number-up -> Four pages

Another solution that works for me (acroread segfault here too), is dropping the file within firefox, the acroread pdf plugins works.
