What program are you using to compile the document? The default TeX 
+Ghostscript uses dvips->ps2pdf to go from dvi to pdf but the dvipdfm  
option tells latex (which doesn't ``know'' how the dvi it produces  
will end up as a pdf file) that you are will be using dvipdfm.

Just curious... why aren't you able to remove the dvipdfm? Are you  
mixing pdf and eps figures?

I believe there is an option to simpdftex (the program that puts  
together all the processing steps) that can be added that tells it to  
use dvipdfmx to go from dvi->pdf instead of the default dvips- 
 >ps2pdf13. I don't have a record of that option but I suspect others  
will chime in.

Good Luck,
