Most modern printers use a compatible font if one is not encoded into
the document. However, in the event of unique fonts or characters, it
can potentially be a problem.

I have used Adobe Acrobat DC, yes I know it is not available for
FreeBSD, to convert documents into 'print versions". I use the "Convert
to PDF/X-4 (Coated FOGRA39)" format. It converts the current document
to PDF/X-4 for Coated FOGRA39 as the intended printing condition
according to the PDF/X-4 standard. Transparency and layers are allowed.

In most case; however, I find that totally unnecessary.
