[tex-eplain] xepsf - what bounding box comment does it need?

hopefully somebody can explain xepsf to me (I've been working
with epsf for years, but this has gone in TeX-Live 2008).
And xepsf produces strikingly different results.

The tiny test

\input xepsf

gives the following log entry:

No bounding box comment in RWTH.eps; using defaults
RWTH.eps: width=45.13898pt, height=62.50005pt [1] )

But the first lines of the file RWTH.eps are

%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0
%%BoundingBox: 2 0 920 251
%%HiResBoundingBox: 2.700000 0.400000 919.400000 250.067187
%%Creator: GPL Ghostscript 863 (epswrite)
%%CreationDate: 2008/11/24 12:00:53
%%DocumentData: Clean7Bit
%%LanguageLevel: 2

So, why is xepsf claiming "No bounding box comment in RWTH.eps"

Many thanks for hint,
