"worked better" is an euphemism to me, all my .tex files which reference
graphs in folders higher up in file structure (which is almost all my
.tex files) will have to be modifed if this cannot be fixed.

As I said, I used the Migration Assistant, so everything should be in
the same place as before (all .tex and .eps files are in my User
folder). Currently, ~/Library/texmf is deleted as part of my 'debugging'
attempts but I naturally have a back-up.
The -d switch will not work, the man pages say:
-d num Set the debug flags. This is intended only for emergencies or
for unusual fact-finding expeditions; it will work only
if dvips has been compiled with the DEBUG option.
as I do not intend to compile dvips myself.
