Is there any way to compress the pdf files that are generated from the print dialog? That is, generate smaller pdf files of comparable quality? Not counting adobe acrobat. I was hoping perhaps that ghostscript or imagemagick would provide a way, but, looking at the documentation, I did not find one. There is an app called pdfcompress on vt, but I have not been able to get it to work. Any help would be, as always, greatly appreciated.

There are a couple of pdf tools over at gnu-darwin.org. You might have to search a little, but I've seen them. These should all be binaries, so no problems with compiling them.
