this cannot work, because pst-fill sets the optional arguments
depending to \PstTiling. The reason why you have to define it

%-------------
\input pst-fill

\def\Tiling#1(#2){%
\pspicture(#2)
\psframe[fillstyle=boxfill,#1](#2)
\endpspicture}

\def\Hexagon{%
\pspicture(0.866,0.75)%
\SpecialCoor
\pspolygon[dimen=middle](0.5;30)(0.5;90)%
(0.5;150)(0.5;210)(0.5;270)(0.5;330)%
\endpspicture}

\psboxfill{\Hexagon}
%\Tiling{fillsepx=0,fillsepy=0}(5,5)
\Tiling{}(5,5)

\bye

I did some more changes to the code, which are not related
to your problem, but make live easier :-)
