An OS-X solution: I think MacGhostViewX does this 

An OS-9 solution: I used to use PS2EPS+ 
<http://www.lerup.com/ps2eps.shtml>. It did a wonderful job but is based 
on GhostScript 2.3 and cannot handle some recent EPS files.

With GraphicConverter: I think I specified MacGSView 
<http://www.ghostscript.com/macos/index.htm>. It's a Classic 
application, but GraphicConverter doesn't seem to notice and does its 
magic very efficiently.
