I believe I have the older one Martin. The content of ps2psf is as follows:
# $Id: ps2pdf13 6300 2005-12-28 19:56:24Z giles $
# Convert PostScript to PDF 1.3 (Acrobat 4-and-later compatible).
exec ps2pdfwr -dCompatibilityLevel=1.3 "$@"
My LaTeX installation is a standard MacTeX installation.
Thanks for your feedback.
