* /CreationDate
* Changes in the "random" part of font names that only contain
  a subset of glyphs.
* The linux pdf file have an encoding object that contains the
  differences for the glyph at position zero and the used glyphs.
  The solaris file contains a much longer encoding object, probably
  all glyphs, also the glyphs where there is no difference.
  Also the position of the object is an other: in the solaris
  version the object comes before the embedded font file,
  in the linux version afterwards.
* Of course the changed size and position of the encoding object
  leads to an other xref table.
