you may try to hinder dvips on reencoding the fonts with

dvips -j0 -o in.dvi

the problem is, that dvips reencode the fonts and give a new
name to the font. When your graphics also use the font, it
can not be found because dvips has renamed it.

When you use only the computer modern fonts there is no problem
because dvips may or many not reencode the fonts but it makes sure
that there is nothing missed. But for fonts in  a included graphics
and the fonts in the text dvips can not do this because dvips
don't anamyse the fonts in a included graphics.

You can reset the default text font and Mathematics fonts after loading
wrisym.sty, than only the definitions for the monospaced mathematics
output remain and you need only this to typeset input and output.
But be careful Computer Modern look not very harmonic with the
monospaced Mathematica fonts ...
