Executing the bin file gave me a segmentation fault. But downloading 
another package worked for me:

	bunzip2 AdbeRdr9.1.0-1_i386solaris_enu.pkg.bz2
	pkgadd -d AdbeRdr9.1.0-1_i386solaris_enu.pkg

The print dialog even offers our two cups printers, but the PPDs do not 
seem to be honored. At least I can't specify paper trays, select duplex 
printing,... Any solution to that?
