Plus, if I understood correctly, using --dvipsopts instead of -- 
extradvipsopts erases all other dvips options (--maxpfb in this  
case). From /Library/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/simpdftex  
(a human readable perl script):

		Give arbitrary arguments to dvips, e.g.
		--dvipsopts "-M"
		Sets extension for --extendedfilename to .custom. --dvipsopts
		overrides other flags that set dvipsopts.
		Give extra arbitrary arguments to dvips, e.g.
		--extradvipsopts "-M"
		Sets extra options for dvips and does not set extension
		or override other options. Options will be added to the end
		of the options for dvips
