The 'convert' program that comes as part of the ImageMagick package can
perform SVG to EPS conversions, but the tool I'd recommend is 'sketch'
which can load SVG and save as EPS; sketch seems to do a much better job
of this particular conversion than convert, but has the disadvantage
that you have to do it manually through the GUI rather than using a
command line. Both ImageMagick and sketch are open source.
