Yes, it's strange that everybody has acroread, but nobody has ghostscript,
although both are free, postscript is older and tools to produce postscript
are available for free.

The best tool I know to produce pdf is pdflatex. That's why I modified
lilypond-book to use pdflatex. However, I consider this version in alpha
or beta state at most. I have sent a patch to the developer list:
If you like, I can send you the file via private mail.

So far, I'm using it successfully to produce a booklet of songs.
With the hyperref package I get a nice clickable table of contents.
I haven't seen any floating note heads, but I don't use advanced features
of lilypond.

Best regards
