I'm assuming here that you're using 4.1 or 4.2 under Windows (if not, what 
I'm about to tell you won't work).  Open the following file in a text 
editor:

$TopDirectory\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\PostScriptHeader.tr

where $TopDirectory is your Mathematica installation directory.  Use your 
editor's find command to search for the following text:

/acute/.notdef

Replace this with

/acute/mu

There will only be one instance of this to replace.  Now restart 
Mathematica and re-create your EPS graphics.  Everything should work 
perfectly.  If you experience any problems restarting Mathematica after 
making this change, hold down Control+Shift while restarting.

Sincerely,
