.. other pstricks packages ...
\usepackage[colorlinks=true,linkcolor=blue, urlcolor=cyan]{hyperref}

makes life easier, because the dvips is passed to all other
packages. With these settings you'll get a document with
hyperlinks. However, when using pdflatex you do not need
the pdftex option, the graphics driver can detect the pdftex
mode by itself. Use only
\documentclass{..}{..} without the dvips option.

You need the pdflatex run only when you want to use png or pdf images
or using the microtype package. In all other cases
a latex->dvips-ps2pdf works well.
