[Mac OS X TeX] Graphics package and pdfTeX

This is more a question about pdfTeX than TeXShop itself. Here it is:

Is the LaTeX graphics package (as opposed to graphicx) notoriously 
incompatible with pdfTeX? Is there a workaround? I am including a PDF 
image, which I want LaTeX to think of a different size than it actually 
is. With the graphicx package this works perfectly using:

\includegraphics[bb=0 0 380 380]{imagename.pdf}

or equivalent formulations in terms of the keys "viewport" or "trim". 
However, I would prefer to use the graphics package, and none of the 
supposedly equivalent




does work (everything I get is blank empty space). Needless to say, with 
EPS files and the TeX + GhostScript option of TeXShop, all formulations 
are equivalent and work well.
