Thanks for the test file.
I suspect that the following is going on:
1) latex in TeX Live 2004 is based on pdfetex engine
2) your latex.fmt file was not generated properly (i.e. by calling
"fmtutil --byfmt latex"). As a result, the \pdfoutput macro
remained defined, because pdftex-dvi.tex was not read when making a
3) the egpubl_SM.cls file contains some inportable code like this:
\ifx\pdfoutput\undefined \pdffalse % we are not running PDFLaTeX
\pdfoutput=1 % we are running PDFLaTeX
This makes the graphics package think that we're running under
pdflatex, instead of latex. As a result, you get an error, because
pdflatex does not understand PS or EPS files.
To solve this problem, please try to re-generate the latex format
prolerly, i.e. by running "fmtutil --byfmt latex".
