That's a truetype font, so as far as my understanding goes, you don't  
need to convert it. To get at the files, unstuff the downloaded file  
(for instance with stuffit expander: http://www.stuffit.com/mac/ 
expander/index.html), and then run "fondu -afm" on the Font Suitcase  
file to create .ttf and .afm files (http://fondu.sourceforge.net/).

To proceed from there, there are a few tutorials that I can see  
through google on how to set up a ttf font for use with pdftex. I  
don't know which ones are recent, recommended, flawed, etc., maybe  
somebody else can help out.
