I am guessing that you are writing software that generates
Postscript, that you then send through Distiller for conversion to
PDF, yes? If not, then what you are trying to accomplish, from what
software on what platforms?

It sounds like it would be a LOT easier for you to simply
modify your application to use a library like PDFlib
() or SPDF () to
generate and/or modify PDF documents.
