Make it \includegraphics{export.eps} (no space between \include and  
graphics). No need to write the .eps extension explicitly if you're  
using TeX + dvips + Ghostscript.

\usepackage{epstopdf} should allow the inclusion of EPS files when  
using pdfTeX, without preliminary conversion to PDF format (though I  
would recommend it for speed considerations). A whole directory of  
EPS files can be converted in one go from the command line by either:

apply epstopdf *.eps

(which uses teTeX's distiller /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple- 
darwin-current/epstopdf, or /usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin- 
current/epstopdf in case you're lucky enough to own an Intel Mac), or

apply pstopdf *.eps

(which uses Apple's distiller /usr/bin/pstopdf).
