Something is wrong with your system/ports...

These are native FreeBSD libraries.

and ldconfig sees it;

Yes, native FreeBSD ldconfig sees it's native libraies.

$ ldconfig -r | grep libgobject
        219:-lgobject-2.0.0 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
        460:-lgobject-2.0.0 => /usr/local/lib/

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

Any pointers would be helpful.

A linux application (i.e. acroread8) use linux libraries which by
default are installed to /compat/linux.

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
from /boot/loader.conf?
I installed from the ports - (FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE)

Please, show commands you had given.
a simple;
cd /usr/ports/print/acroread8
make install clean
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.

Please, show an output of commands:
