[XeTeX] Trimming an included pdf file

I am including pdf files containing graphics produced with pgf in a  
xelatex document, and find that they sit too far to the right on the  
page in the final document. I assume the problem is that the left  
margin of the graphic file is being included in the final file,  
giving a double margin. Once upon a time, when xelatex used the  
\includegraphic command, there was a trim option which be could used  
to deal with this problem. But now with \XeTeXpdffile there is  
apparently no such option. Or am I missing something?

Is there a simpler way to deal with this than cropping the graphics  
manually in a graphics application like GraphicConverter? (I'm  
working on a Mac).
