I have followed a few threads with similar error but have found no
resolution yet.

Any pointers would be helpful.

Please forgive if I seem a trifle dense, but how did you go about installing? If done using the ports system, as part of the process linux_compat and various linux-* ports should have installed as dependencies. Perhaps the install succeeded but left out linux_load="YES" from /boot/loader.conf?
I installed from the ports - (FreeBSD 3s1.com 6.2-RELEASE)
but it didn't touch the /boot/loader.conf file.

Is there a way to load this without rebooting?

Possibly it may be one of the few things that need linprocfs_load="YES" too, but I doubt this because there would be a different error.
I'll look at that.
I would expect it to be looking for the library referenced above somewhere below the /compat or /usr/compat (the first is a link) which is where the linuxolator resides. This library should be being provided by the linux- gtk2-2.6.10_1 port. Since the acroread8 is a linux blob it should be using the linuxolator to run.

The acroread8 port did not install linux-gtk2

ports are up-to-date.
