Bug#561151: pdvipdfm fails to convert eps images

Package: texlive-binaries
Version: 2009-3
File: /usr/bin/dvipdfmx

When trying to run a relatively simple dvi file throgh dvipdfm (simple
text with an external eps image), I get the following:

| [bas@helena]blktrace/btt/doc> dvipdfm btt.dvi 
| btt.dvi -> btt.pdf
| ** WARNING ** Failed to load AGL file "pdfglyphlist.txt"...
| ** WARNING ** Failed to load AGL file "glyphlist.txt"...
| [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14sh: rungs: not found
| ** WARNING ** Filtering file via command -->rungs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sPAPERSIZE=a0 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dAutoFilterGrayImages=false -dGrayImageFilter=/FlateEncode -dAutoFilterColorImages=false -dColorImageFilter=/FlateEncode -sOutputFile=/tmp//dvipdfmx.XZxFjbi ./activity.eps -c quit<-- failed.
| ** WARNING ** Image format conversion for "./activity.eps" failed...
| ** ERROR ** pdf_ref_obj(): passed invalid object.
| Output file removed.

Looking at the strace output, it seems dvipdfmx really seems to try
and run the command "rungs" rather than simply "gs".  

| [bas@helena]blktrace/btt/doc> strace -ff dvipdfm btt.dvi|&grep execve
| execve("/usr/bin/dvipdfm", ["dvipdfm", "btt.dvi"], [/* 68 vars */]) = 0
| [pid 16410] execve("/bin/sh", ["sh", "-c", "rungs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sPAP"...], [/* 74 vars */]) = 0

The command above with s/rungs/gs/ run flawlessly from the command line.
