All the files mentioned are from a previous release and should be 
deleted. The format of the ACD relations records changed in the new release.

You can do that most easily by deleting all files in the 
/usr/local/bioinfosoft/emboss/share/EMBOSS/acd/ directory and then 
running "make install" from the emboss directory again to install all 
the ACD files for the new release.

Do let us know (emboss-bug at emboss.open-bio.org) if that fails to fix it, 
or if you have any other problems or questions
