You write "latex + ghostscript." How comes dvips on the scene?

Tell us the exact commands that are used until the error occurs – or  
throw the EPS files on TeXShop that they get converted to PDF for  
simple inclusion with pdfLaTeX. Could be then Ghostscript would need  
to know how the Myriad fonts can be found ... Preview would be  
another option for converting EPS to PDF.

Have you tried simpdftex?

	simpdftex is a way to do pdf{e}{la}tex without having pdf{e}{la}tex.  
It needs a
	working TeX environment and ghostscript. Since pdf{e}{la}tex cannot  
	insertion of .eps graphics, simpdftex gives an alternative. The  
output for both
	systems is comparable.
