So, shall I create a bug report for GenToo?
My GenToo distribution texlive-core 2008-r4 definitely does not
contain neither epsf.sty nor epsf.tex.
Instead there is
and the first lines of it read
% XEPSF.TEX macro file:
% Same as EPSF.TEX except that it uses the ExactBoundingBox put out by
% MetaPost under appropriate coding.
% (I made this unnecessary on 22 Jan 97 by changing MetaPost to
% output the exact bounding box when prologues<0. But I retain this
% file for compatibility with older uses of MetaPost, e.g. gbmac.tex.)
% Written by Tomas Rokicki of Radical Eye Software, 29 Mar 1989.
% Revised by Don Knuth, 3 Jan 1990.
% Revised by Tomas Rokicki to accept bounding boxes with no
% space after the colon, 18 Jul 1990.
Unfortunately it behaves differently.
