[OS X TeX] eps/fonts problem with pdflatex

I have tried to use old illustrations eps file, made with Photoshop +  
Illustrator (for axes, lettering, etc.)

With pdflatex (+ epstopdf), all the lettering get ugly (font  
substituted, bad spacing).

With latex + ghostscript, I get the same output, but I get also the  
following messages:

/usr/texbin/dvips: Font Myriad-Roman used in file [...].eps is not in  
the mapping file.
/usr/texbin/dvips: Font Myriad-Italic used in file [...].eps is not  
in the mapping file.

I can hardly understand why tex takes care of these fonts: they are  
not used as input in TeX, there are only part of the illustration,  
and they should be transparent for TeX and TeX-related programs.

What do you think ?

What should I do?
