Solved by using pdftocairo, without using Adobe Acrobat:

lpadmin -p 'Kyocera-FS-C5300DN-KPDL' -o
pdftops-renderer-default=pdftocairo -o

now printing took about 1 second to start (10 test pages printed in a
bouch of seconds and not about 40 minutes)
Printed page is exactly as the ghostscript one.

Is possible to set this automatically from PPD?
