The following version of epspdf.applescript ought to do it, at least
if you use the bash shell:

set sPath to do shell script "source /etc/profile && source $HOME/.bash_profile && echo $PATH"
set pathToMe to path to me as text
set posixPath to do shell script "dirname " & quoted form of POSIX path of pathToMe
do shell script ("/bin/sh -c 'export PATH=" & sPath & " ; " & posixPath & "/epspdftk.rb'")
