I have used Frank Siebert's PStill for several years and have been quite satisfied with it.
It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, NeXTSTEP/OpenStep, Linux, Solaris, IRIX, HP/UX, AIX, FreeBSD

The price of a license ranges from about $20 - $100 depending on context and components
needed.  Personal use $23 (cheap!), Educational price even cheaper!

What's wrong with good old Ghostscript, available under both GPL and AFPL public license: http://www.ghostscript.com/.  It's free, except for comercial use.

There's a dedicated shell script to ps2pdf conversion included:
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/AFPL/8.00/Ps2pdf.htm

It's got source code available, too.

The problem with Ghostscript is that it becomes fairly expensive for commercial use, at least for low sales volume. If that's what you are looking for, Jaws PDF Creator is a cheaper alternative (at least cheaper than Acrobat): $79 for a single license (http://www.jawspdf.com)
