Does Acrobat support HPGL or HPGL/2 formats? (HPGL - HP's graphic language)

ISSUE: Not able to plot a drawing which we converted to a PDF format. The Drawing dimensions are 48" by 80" to 196" in length. The plotter is Xerox Model 8830 and using ACCXES driver. We are trying to print it with 200DPI. If the drawing dimensions are 48" x 120" then it plots a plot that is 3/4th of it's original size. If the drawing is 48" by 150" and up it doesn't even attempt to do anything, it just crapps out. Scaling down the drawings is not an acceptable solution. Any suggestion on this will be helpful.

Also I think that acrobat does not support HPGL or HPGL/2 format. If it did not we could dump an HPGL format to the plotter and that would work.
