Hi Pali,

Have you tried passing -P-e on the command line when using -T pdf? One 
difference is that dvipdfmx always embeds the fonts, whereas gropdf does not 
automatically embed the base 14 type 1 fonts, so it is then up to the pdf 
viewer to select the actual font it uses. On my system it seems to use 
LiberationSerif for Times Roman. If you include the flag the ghostscript Times 
Roman font will be embedded.

You may even be able to use the flag -P-yU on the command line, which instead 
will embed the URW versions of the fonts.

Finally, you might install the tex Computer Modern fonts for gropdf to use in 
place of the currently installed fonts. One of these stratagems may be as good 
as the dvi route.
