I recently used strace to find out why it takes so much time to launch
acroread and found out that it examines the X11 font directory.

The only explanation I have for this behavior is that it tries to use
fonts provided by the operating system for bookmarks if they are not
provided by acroread itself.

However, acroread provides a reasonable amount of fonts itself and CJK
fonts can be downloaded from Adobe if needed.  I assume that Adobe
provides all fonts which are needed for the menues for all languages
supported by acroread.  But bookmarks can be in arbitrary languages.

Don't know whether this is possible.  It would be great because it
would make documents more portable.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
