Trying to convert a eps-file to a pdf-file my computer
gives me the following error-message.

The eps-file was produced with metapost. It has some
mathematical symbols in it. I think that`s the reason for
the error-message. The metapost-file has some labels of the
form  label.top(btex $\Phi_t(t)$ etex, z2);

Does anybody know how to convert eps-files with text into
pdf-files ?

Here`s the output.
