I don't know of one, so I'm running this line on the
live-20070114.iso, mounted as /tmp/tl2007/:

  find /tmp/tl2007/ -name '*.pdf' | xargs -L 1 ./checkone.sh

where checkone.sh is

if pdf2ps $1 /dev/null 2>&1 | grep '.' >& $t ; then
  echo "=== error: $1 ===="
  cat $t
  echo "=== $1 ==="

Here, pdf2ps uses gs v8.50.  I found that xpdf's pdftops is not half
as pick as pdf2ps.  So far it's done 500 files (of 1600 or so), and
these are the problematic ones:

=== error: /tmp/tl2007/texmf-dist/doc/latex/GuIT/guittest.pdf ====

Most of the errors are:

   **** Embedded font uses undefined procedure RD

I'll send a complete report when it's done.
