That's the hard way around; the LaTeX source is available on TeXlive, here:

Further, the README in that directory notes that the .tex files were 
updated to a "more modern LaTeX" style -- and, if you go up a directory 
level, you'll find reprocessed PDF files to match, which are nice clean 
versions with type-1 fonts and proper margins and the pages all in the 
right order.

(Well, mostly proper margins; the mpman.pdf file seems to be a half-inch 
too high.)
