With the help of Kino Quinon I put together a small package, called  
Applekeys, that has these keys as eps and pdf images so it just works  
with either pdflatex or latex+dvips+distiller processing. It is  
called AppleKeys.zip and is available from <http://homepage.mac.com/ 

Hope this helps.

Good Luck,
