[OS X TeX] pdf graphic too new to be included

When I work on my old PowerBook G3 Series running Jaguar (vintage 1998, 
forbidden by Apple to update to Panther), the version of Preview that 
it runs does not allow me to crop pdf graphics. I opened the graphic in 
Adobe Acrobat 6.0 (not the Reader, the full Acrobat), but got this when 
I tried to include the cropped graphic in a LaTeX document:

Error: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdflatex (file 
set_is_unit/qqnorm_for_sets_c.pdf): pdf inclusion: found pdf version 
<1.5>, but
  at most version <1.4> allowed
  ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!

Is it possible that the latest LaTeX implementation (I recently 
installed TL2004 with iInstaller) does not handle a version of pdf that 
was created by a version of Acrobat that is not even the most recent 
(Acrobat 7)? Anyone knows when this will change?
