Thanks for your report.

Actually a dependency is too strong, because Dynare works fine without epstool.
A Recommends is better.

Also, I will rather add the Recommends on octave itself, because epstool is
used by the builtin print.m command (pretty much as pstoedit, which is already
a Recommends of octave).

Best,
