Actually, no...the log file is produced by pdfeTeX:

    This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
    (format=latex 2005.9.2 9)  29 NOV 2007 06:18

It looks like pdfTeX is the one doing the complaining:

    ! LaTeX Error: File `websurvey_pg1' not found.

    See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
    Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

     l.1049 ...idth=6.3in, height=8.7in]{websurvey_pg1}

     I could not locate the file with any of these extensions:

So, EPS file missing: No go.  PDF file missing: No go.  Both present
and accounted for: Let's rock.

Makes no sense, but like all things involving TeX, don't mess with
that which finally works.
