That's exactly what I did. Now, here is some additional info that I 
got from the Console

For ps & eps files, I get the message
MANPATH: Undefined variable.

For dvi files, I get the message
### Skipping latex grfguide.dvi [dvi->pdf only]
### /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/dvips -R -u 
+psfonts.map -u +pdftex.map -u +wolfram.map  -o 
/tmp/altpdflatex.1857/grfguide.ps grfguide.dvi
Segmentation fault
### FAILED to generate /tmp/altpdflatex.1857/grfguide.ps (139)
So, apparently, the script starts OK but dvips fails.

Any hint on how to solve the problem?

I should like to mention that the dvi & eps files are pre-MacOSX Mac files.
