Hummm, actually, xpdf *does* show hyperlinks in documents. At
least, for my Master's thesis, which I generate with pdflatex
(with help of the hyperref package) I can click on all
hyperlinks, internal to the document or not (that is, pointing
to a document on the web).
The only problems that I have with xpdf are:
1 - its anti-aliasing is not as good as acroread's;
2 - the user interface is not good also; it should probably
use another widget toolkit and a redesign of the window;
3 - it doesn't show transitions in pdf files (like those
generated by PPower4), which makes it unfeasible for
showing presentations -- acroread does fine here.
