I am not sure if this can help. However, for PostScript files one 
roundabout way to gather information on the bounding box in GS 7.05, 
which does not reply on the bbox device, is to use the command 
"ps2epsi". This is a script which uses its own algorithm to compute the 
bounding box of a PostScript file. Unfortunately, "ps2epsi" does not 
compute the high resolution bounding box. Furthermore, the action of 
this command results in a .epsi file, which means that to get the 
bounding box information one must parse this file or modify the 
"ps2epsi" script so that only the bounding box information is output.
