Unfortunately, exporting to pdf has not worked properly since version
5.2.  This export works fine in 5.2.

  gr = ContourPlot[x^2 + y^2, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}];
  Export["file.pdf", gr]

Moreover, the file created with version 5.2 is far smaller than with
later versions.

Often, using the
  "AllowRasterization" -> False
option greatly improves exports to pdf with version 8, but it does not
work in this case.
