The problem is, there's no way LaTeX can need *both* EPS and PDF
versions of any given figure. It's either one, or the other. There
must be something wrong in your setup, or in the way you've operated
it, or in the way people have interpreted the indications you gave here.

For example, in your last message you say you're using latex-suite
under vim. This is an essential element in your problem, I think.
Personally I've never used vi(m), and I've no idea what latex-suite
means. But most people following this thread have probably assumed
you're operating LaTeX through its front-end TeXShop, like most OS X
TeX users do.

So the fact you're using vim instead is essential. This means you're
operating LaTeX through command-line instructions, and knowing exactly
