For some reason, the OpenType fonts bundled with FrameMaker 8,
including Adobe Garamond Pro, reside in
which, in addition to making them not available to non-Adobe programs
such as Office, also means that Distiller can't find them.
To fix this, go to Distiller > Settings > Font Location, and add the
above font location.
That's what I had to do to get the bundled Minion Pro and Myriad Pro
