It seems that I am having problems in embedding the eps fonts in 
generated files using the program emmathfnt from Mathsource.  Currently, 
I am using version 4.2
and with the previous version 4.1, I did not have any problems with 

This is what I am doing:

gr=Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}, FrameLabel\[Rule] { "\[Alpha] ", 

 Run["C:\\WINNT\\emmathfnt","-o",temp,"-d", "C:\\Program Files\\Wolfram 


The file is generated but the fonts are not included.  Can some one tell 
me what I am doing wrong?
Note the executable file emmathfnt is the same found on Mathsource and 
the location of the file is in C:\\WINNT\\.
Also since I still have  version 4.0 fonts,  I tried the above Run 
command without the "-d" flag and I got the same result.

Finally, one  can not help but wonder, why there is no option in export 
that allow the fonts to be included in  Mathematica
generated figures for better portability.

Thank you in advance.
