I've not tried it myself, but couldn't you use ps2eps to create an EPS
file from a PS one-pager?
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-4), gs, perl
Description: Convert PostScript to EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) files
ps2eps is a tool to produce Encapsulated PostScript Files (EPS/EPSF)
from usual one-paged Postscript documents. It calculates correct
Bounding Boxes for those EPS files and filters some special
postscript command sequences that can produce erroneous results on
printers. EPS files are needed for including (scalable) graphics
into TeX (or even Word) documents. Other programs like ps2epsi do
not calculate the bounding box always correct (because the values are
put on the postscript stack which may get corrupted by bad postscript
code) or rounded it off so that clipping the EPS cut off some part of
the image. Therefore ps2eps uses a resolution of 144 dpi to get the
correct bounding box.
