I forgot: looking through the doc, you can see that by default epspdf  
adds 1 point in each direction to the bounding box it computes, to  
prevent too tight cropping.

In case, looking at the output, you find out that this precaution was  
unnecessary, you can change the default by opening in a text editor / 
Applications/epspdf/epspdfrc.rb, and changing the line

   'bb_spread' => Setting.new( '1', 'config',


   'bb_spread' => Setting.new( '0', 'config',
