I was under the impression, as Ruben points out, that epsfig would be  
used to include eps graphics, which won't compile properly under  
pdflatex, to the best of my knowledge. How do you use the epsfig  
package? Can you send the list or me a minimal example file of your  
use that:

1) Includes the epsfig package
2) Compiles fine with pdflatex from the command line
3) Will not compile fine if we replace the epsfig package with the  
graphicx package
