The solution is turn ON the "Create Named Destinations
for All Paragraphs" box, then recreate the PS file and distill.

Distiller's message indicates that, as a matter of fact, there are
some links/bookmarks in the current PDF which use the undefined
destinations, and are therefore non-functional (will do nothing
when clicked). The bad links/bookmarks can be easily identified
with PDF link checking utilities.

This bug is present in FrameMaker 7.0 also; there are sample
.fm files available through the link above which demonstrate
the impact of this on hypertext links and/or cross-references.

[ Turning this option on increases the PDF file size. If file size
is an issue, there are other techniques to safely discard all
destinations which are not used by links/bookmarks. ]
