What versions? I just tested, from your list, lbx.PS.gz in ghostscript
8.62 w/o any problems. (Direcly and via gv(1).)
GS 8.62's pd2pdf created PDFs from those PS files which work well in
both xpdf-3.02 and xpdf/poppler. And ghostscript, of course.
The files do not include fonts, as they use the standard PS fonts Times,
Courier and Symbol, so if you are not using ghostscript as a backend
you'll need fontconfig configured to alias those font names to something
metric-compatable you have installed. (The URW ghostscript fonts and
RH's Liberation family will work.)
As for the question you actually asked, MIF is a well-documented text
format, and several conversion and import filters exist.
Googling for mif2xml shows some useful leads.
Mif2Lyx (http://www.cs.brandeis.edu/~pablo/mif2lyx/) also looks promising.
And there may be some interesting stuff at
