Unncessarily cumbersome, perhaps necessary in that operating system, but in Panther just do

. translate rollreg.hlp rollreg.pdf

and It Just Works.

Another way to create a .pdf version of a Stata .hlp file is to create a
.ps version of a Stata .hlp file using -translate-, as in

. translate c:\ado\personal\parmest.hlp parmest.ps

and then to use whatever software is available on your system to convert
the .ps file to a .pdf file. For instance, I work on Windows 2000, and use
GhostScript/GSView to convert .ps files to .pdf files, using the menu sequence

File->Convert

inside GhostScript/GSView.

I hope this helps.
