The primitive is called \pdfannot. Here is an example:

\pdfannot width \wd\abox
          height \ht\abox
          depth \dp\abox
          {/Subtype /Link /Border [0 0 1]
           /A << /S /GoToR
                 /F (test.pdf)
                 /D [3 /Fit]
                 /NewWindow true >>}\box\abox
