Not really – except you don't have enough disk space: you also need  
the Apple Developer Tools package.

Both of the files are probably identical, only one of them gets used,  
depending on the CPU in your mac. Rename the file to <file name>.pl  
and remember to invoke it as epstopdf.pl! The binary from C code will  
have the name epstopdf.

The third file is an elder 'backup' or relict from some other package  
that's obviously not up-to-date. Leave it!
