Dear managers,

Some reported that they are satisfied with ggv but did not mention 
which system they are on. It works for me as well on x86 but I can''t 
read PDFs on SPARC. However, I was able to build xpdf (see my other 
mail) and also installed Acrobat Reader whichis available for SPARC. 
Both solutions solve my problem.

Thanks a lot!
