This did not work for me when I tried it. The pdf file still had the 
fonts embedded and Illustrator choked.

My advice is to use WARMFigToPDF. Alternatively, I had (only partial) 
success (google the archives for a complete report) by placing 
Macintosh versions of the postscript fonts for TeX in Illustrator's 
font path.
