Cenon is the closest thing. http://www.cenon.info --- not PD, but GPL  
or some similarly open license.

For just doing the bounding box, you're probably best off making  
the .eps into a .pdf, then cropping that, some of the pdf viewers for  
NeXTstep afforded this functionality if memory serves, or printing to  
a .pdf set to the desired size, or using TeXshop's select-clipping- 
drag functionality, then convert the pdf back into a .eps (keep the  
original, since this sort of thing makes editing awkward).
