I make use of these macros a lot. The only problem
when dealing with Mathematica generated graphics
is that Mathematica never computes a correct bounding
box for the graphics. The only way around this 
is to actually print the picture pull out a ruler
an measure the correct bounding box, translate
this to pts and insert this with the epsf macro:

Ex:

\epsfxsize = 2cm
\epsffile[llx lly urx ury]{ file.eps }

where 
llx	-- Lower left x coordinate
lly	-- Lower left y coordinate
urx	-- Upper right x coordinate
ury	-- Upper right y coordinate

PS. 	This is something that you should really 
	expect Mathematica to handle ...
	I've suggested it to WRI.
