Thanks, I found that myself.  However, when using ps2pdf from Miktex 2.7, I
get the following error:

Unrecoverable error: typecheck in .putdeviceprops

I will try to manually invoke gs or, eventually, just use Distiller.

Ah, now I remember why I don't use pdflatex: when you re-create the document,
the viewer gets _very_ confused, so I have to close and reopen the file and go
to the page I was viewing.  When I recreate postscript and turn on "Watch file"
in ghostview, I get automatic and quick previews of my work.
