On Mac OS 10.3 or later, it's very easy: just save as EPS, and then open
the EPS with the Preview application. It will automatically convert to
vector-based PDF with no border (which is just what you want). Save the
PDF version and call it in TeX with \includegraphics
Incidentally, if you are using Keynote for a presentation, you don't
even need to save the PDF -- you can copy the autoconverted EPS file and
paste into Keynote where it appears as scalable, transparent PDF, which
looks fantastic. Makes PowerPoint look clunky...
