While I would personally use Maarten's approach, you can also use 
AppleScript to automate this, using the same epstopdf command.  The 
script can also be saved and reused easily, if you forget the Terminal 
commands :).

		do shell script "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin ; 
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/epstopdf " & the 
quoted form of the POSIX path of EachItem
	end repeat
end open
-- End script
