Just don't use these options :-) And if you say


(i.e., without specifying the .eps or .pdf suffix) your pdflatex or
dvips will automatically insert the appropriate format (provided you
have both myfile.eps and myfile.pdf in your TeX search path!)

Then DocBook is a good option! It is less complex than LaTeX, and
copes with the problem you mention: all Linux documentation (on
linuxdoc.org) is now standardized on DocBook!
