I've been using groff to create a PostScript file, then I use the Linux convert command:

Did I miss something?

Just to muddy the waters a bit, I've been emailing PDF files to Windows and MAC types for years. I create a ps file in groff and then use ps2pdfwr (the latest of the ps2pdf conversion utilites I've used over the years) to create the PDF file, with the following switches:

ps2pdfwr -dEmbedAllFonts=true -dUseCIEColor=true -dPDFSETTINGS=/printer \ output_pdf_file.pdf

I've never had a complaint.
