[OS X TeX] Importing graphics in LaTeX

I want to include an EPS file generated by Grapher.app in a LateX
document. It compiles fine, but then I get a bizarre error when using
dvipdfm on the file

endstream not found

Expecting an object, but didn't find one
Current input buffer is -->
<</Length 6 0 R/Filter /FlateDecode>>
Didn't find "endobj"

No Contents found
pdf: image inclusion failed for (Figs/prob.eps).

Asked for 4294960271

The document includes other EPS files without problem.

I tried converting this file to PDF -- either exporting from Grapher
as PDF or using epstopdf -- and I get another kind of error (this one
happens with any EPS file AFAIK):

! LaTeX Error: File `Figs/prob.bb' not found.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
l.1356 ...hics[width=0.8\textwidth]{Figs/prob.pdf}

I realise that the problem is that it's not finding the bounding box
information in the PDF file.  I have never seen a .bb file before, so
I'm not sure how to create it.

Many thanks in advance, José
