In my previous e-mail message I forgot to mention that Gary Gray and I 
have written an AppleScript that, starting from a filename.ps file 
containing, say, a figure on a single page, turns said file into a 
corresponding filename.eps file as well as a filename.pdf file both of 
which have bounding boxes obtained via the "ps2epsi" script. If this 
might be of interest, we would be glad to distribute the script.
