The acroread 4 license, IMHO, allows redistribution for non-commercial
as well as commercial purposes, without further restrictions. The
acroread 5 license is more problematic for different reasons, that's why
I still keep version 4 instead of version 5. Feel free to remove it
anyways, in your derivate distribution.
