Bad idea. Please remove that link.

Your manual linking does not satisfy RPM as it does not know about that
custom linkage. Linking this way even may not work because the .so.6
version could have different routines and thus the acroreader fail to

Much better than using "rpm -i" (it is even recommended to use "rpm -U")
is running

yum localinstall AdobeReader_enu-7.0.5-1.i386.rpm

That will automatically try to resolve dependencies. Yours will be
resolved by additionally installing compat-libstdc++-33, which ships the
required libstdc++.so.5.
