Try epstopdf. I do the following in Matlab. First I print with the - 
depsc2 driver [e.g. print('-depsc2', 'filename.eps')] and then I do:

system('PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin"; export PATH; /usr/local/teTeX/ 
bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/epstopdf --outfile ''filename.pdf''  

I forget exactly why I put the path stuff in there.
