So I tried installing this on an up-to-date CentOS 7.3 system and it 
fails to find
Error: Package: AdobeReader_enu-9.5.5-1.i486 (/AdbeRdr9.5.5-1_i486linux_enu)
            Requires: libpangox-1.0.so.0

which a yum whatprovides */libpangox-1.0.so.0 shows as:
pangox-compat-0.0.2-2.el7.x86_64 : Compatibility library for pangox
Repo        : epel
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib64/libpangox-1.0.so.0

and even after an install of this package still fails - thus I suspect 
it relates to not finding the 32 bit version as the epel version 
installs this in /usr/lib64

What did you do to overcome this dependency?
