Are you sure that Apple's /usr/bin/pstopdf created bitmaps? This  
utility should work the same way as Preview.

/System/Library/Printers/Libraries/convert is another utility. To use  
it invoke it using absolute path names, i.e. those starting with / or  
${HOME}, à la:

	/System/Library/Printers/Libraries/convert -i application/postscript  
-j application/pdf -f /path/to/file.eps -o ${HOME}/directories/file.pdf

Maybe you'll need a final 'pdfcrop --noverbose --hires file.pdf  
"final file.pdf"' to get it at the right size.
