It sounds as if printer fonts are being invoked...

Try setting your default printer to the Adobe PDF instance. And you
should be able to print to that same logical printer; separate
printing of a PostScript file and then distilling isn't required.
(It's possible that the PostScript driver of whatever printer you are
using isn't true PS too -- I've had trouble with HP emulators in the
past.. )
