The document contains no bitmaps at all. There are a lot of PS vector
objects placed in the document with File > Import > Get Vector File.

I have several printers. All have PCL and PostScript and I have both
drivers installed for each printer. But it doesn't make any difference
which printer I use; the output still takes about ten minutes per page.

I think the problem is the size of the PDF file. I need to figure out
the export options to make it smaller.
