Hi,

you need the Mathematica fonts (Math1 here). 
If you have just one picture the toolkit from:

http://www.mathsource.com/Content/WhatsNew/0210-519

may help you. If you use ghostscript you should add
the Mathematica font directory to the GS_LIBPATH variable.
If you are using an actual TeX, dvips scan the fonts in pictures
and you should use the fontmap from my virtual font package from

http://phong.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~kuska/

In Mathematica 4.0 the font package is included and you need
only look in your Mathematica tree for the wolfram.map file that
neds dvips.

Hope that helps
  Jens
