Unfortunately, apparently the figures weren't put into the 
FrameMaker document via simple copy/paste (bad idea anyway),
but via OLE, "Object Linking and Embedding," which effectively
requires that the FrameMaker document be edited on a system
of the same platform with the application and the application's
file/data available from which the data was copied.
