The version of dvips that OzTex calls (5.86d) doesn't cope well with malformed eps files generated by Illustrator CS3.  It stops with

  ! expected to see %%EndBinary at end of data

See e.g. http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.3c05955a for a description of the problem.

My later versions of dvips (5.96) does better, struggling through the offending eps.

Is there a way to substitute the newer version of dvips for OzTeX to use?  Or must I add my own dvips call to the tools menu?
