http://www.debian.org/releases/2.2/i386/ (for example; other ports have
the same problem) strongly advocates the use of acroread, which is only
free as in beer:

   PDF documents may be viewed with the Adobe® Acrobat® reader, which is
   offered as a gratuity to the public by Adobe Corporation. There is
   both a standalone version and a web browser plug-in that you may
   download. It is very nice, and you will enjoy using the Linux version,
   installable as a Debian package. Please read these documents on your
   computer whenever possible, rather than printing them. PDF documents
   are searchable and have a clickable table of contents. The typesetting
   is publication quality. Save trees! Electrons recycle much more
   readily than paper products.

We should suggest the use of a free PDF viewer instead. There seem to be
several alternatives available:

  [cjw44@riva ~]$ grep-available -ev -FSection 'contrib|non-free' | \
  > grep-dctrl -nsPackage -FProvides pdf-viewer | sort

 boot-floppies (3.0.9) unstable; urgency=low
   * Falk Hueffner
     - New library reducing script mklibs.py, using different algorithm
       that is likelier not to add unneeded symbols. Activated by default
       for Alpha, since mklibs.sh doesn't make them small enough;
       we may move all arches to this in next release
     - Don't copy sys_map and kernel config to rescue floppy on Alpha since
       aboot doesn't fit otherwise.
   * David Kimdon
     - no free adverstising for commercial companies
       closes: #105492
     - Update Danish dbootstrap messages thanks to
       Claus Hindsgaul <claus_h@image.dk>
   * Richard Hirst
     - fix md5sum.txt contents for hppa
     - doc updates for ia64 and hppa
     - move elilo in to /usr/sbin
     - call ia64 kernel linux rather than vmlinux to match other archs
     - ia64 and hppa now use 2.4.7 kernel
   * John H. Robinson, IV
     - Fixed the serial console not 9600 problem
     - Added ReiserFS support
   * Martin Schulze
     - fix nfsroot detection problem for mips
   * Matt Kraai
     - check host name for RFC 1123 compliance
   * Phil Blundell
     - ARM is now using kernel 2.4.5
   * Christian T. Steigies
     - m68k: add more Mac (not map...) keymaps to keymaps.gz.
       I waited one week for a Mac user to test it. Nobody dared...
   * Henning Heinold
     - mips fixing libfdisk for mips (patch from Guido Guenther)
     - mips adding dvhtool (patch from Guido Guenther)
   * Stefan Gybas
     - Initial S/390 support (not working yet)
   * Adam Di Carlo:
     - help the library reduction be better, we hope, by reducing libnewt
       first, then libslang
     - build-depend on aboot for alpha
       closes: #107622
     - build-depend on syslinux for i386
       closes: #107517
     - sparc/sun4u uses kernel-image-2.4.7-sun4u (not 2.4.4)
     - root filesystem: provide /var/dhcp, hopefully this will help when
       dhclient fails
       closes: #107381
   * Guido Guenther
     - dbootstrap: changes for dvhtool support and other MIPS porting
       issues; ip22 should boot now
     - mips now buildable (we hope!)
   * Karsten Merker
     - more mips and mipsel support
   * new busybox/wget fixes the segfault problems installing base
     closes: #107532, #107154
   * new ash should fix some problems configuring modules
     closes: #106693, #107377
