Leave out psfrag, and all PS-only hacks, and TeX-only graphics methods.
Best to use standard tools for creating EPS or TIFF files (for ` vector

I think these days TeX systems come (or should come) with the required
style and *.fd and *.tfm files to support non-CM fonts.  Witness teTeX and
OzTeX which now include support for MathTime and LucidaBright, dramatically
simplifying installation and use.  See
