The reason could be the missing execute permission. What is 'epstopdf  
--version' telling?

I think this only can work when you pass '--shell-escape' to pdf(la) 
tex, because the epstopdf script is invoked from TeX to convert the  
EPS file. And when the script does not execute, it cannot convert and  
you do not get a PDF version.
