Cool. I had browsed through the archives lookng for a pdf reader that
didn't depend on X but I missed 'fbi', presumably since I was using
aptitude which searches only package names by default. Lazy, I know :).
I notice now, however, that 'fbi' doesn't provide the virtual package
'pdf-viewer'; the only ones that do are 'evince', the xpdf packages,
'kpdf', 'gv', 'kghostview', and 'viewpdf'. Is this a bug in
