I don't  think there should be any overhead from Adobe Reader "looking 
for" the font. If you're not using it, it won't show up anywhere.

If you load the SLA file into a text editor, you can do a search and 
replace with "Times" (make sure you get the name exactly right) 
substituted with one of the fonts you do have -- again, get the spelling 

Again, I think it's unnecessary, since it's not hurting Scribus, your 
file, or Adobe Reader.
