Thanks. I think that neither pdftex nor gs caused the problem:
practically all my papers have the same preamble and thus the same
fonts and (almost) all others work fine. When I took a latex (rather
than pdflatex) version and generated dvi and pdf all links stopped to
be clickable.

Actually the same is true with "working" conversion under 7.03. I
suspect that Maple generated pictures are the source of the problem.
Removing them normalized everything and they contained some fonts.
Further, I found another article where I used the same pictures with
axes and it also failed. Other papers used no-axes pictures and they

I would consider this as rather minor but some places like arXiv
require latex (not pdflatex).
