[pdftex] Replacement for psframebox?

I've been recently revising an old document and in a few places it uses
the following macro to put boxes around bits of syntax
The problem is that I've become somewhat enamored with the new
microtypographic features of pdftex. And is well known, PSTricks is not
compatible with pdftex.
I tried replacing \psframebox with a use of LaTeX's \fbox, but this
results in far more padding between the boxes' border and the contents
than is aesthetically pleasing. I think I might be able to hack around
this by placing the contents in a box register and mucking with its
size after the fact (much like \smash).
I've also seen a package called pst-pdf, but it isn't really clear that
this does what one might imagine.
So I figured I would ask if anyone out there has a better solution for
the boxing of text in pdftex. Thanks!
