emacs-w3m now reads the ~/.mailcap file (if any) and gives
priority to the settings in it.  So, if you want to use ACROREAD
to view pdf files, add this snippet to the ~/.mailcap file:

application/pdf; ACROREAD %s

Note that you need to use the most recent emacs-w3m in order to
use this feature.

When having edited the ~/.mailcap file, an easy way to reflect
the edit to `w3m-content-type-alist' would be to restart Emacs.
Otherwise, do:

M-x mailcap-parse-mailcaps RET
Eval: (makunbound 'w3m-content-type-alist)
M-x load-library RET w3m RET
