First, TeX Live 2009 (to be released soon) includes a new version of  
the epstopdf package which performs on-the-fly conversion of EPS files  
when compiled with pdfTeX.

Secondly, assuming TeX on Ubuntu includes the simpdftex script, you  
can achieve what you're looking for by creating a new typesetting tool  
corresponding to the command

	simpdftex latex --extratexopts "-synctex=1" <filename>

Here on the Mac the following works.
