I'd just go into Terminal and find out:

which epstopdf

should return the full path of the epstopdf perl script if it exists  
on your system. I believe it is installed as part of the Ghostscript  
i-installer package (or maybe the TeX i-installer package? I can't  
remember which!).

I'd also install the ImageMagik package too!

Good Luck,
