I assume the point of converting to EPS is so the text is in vector
format and can therefore be enlarged indefinitely without loss of
quality.

Whatever you use to generate the image, be sure that the text isn't
rasterized (converted to bitmap) before you export. It seems like the
pslib functions (http://us2.php.net/ps) or any of the PDF-generating
tools that have been mentioned here before might be a better way to go
than either GD or ImageMagick.
