Metafun can do this. If I compile the following with "mptopdf -metafun
new.mp" (not "mpost new.mp"), I get what you want:

externalfigure "file.pdf" xscaled 100 yscaled 100 shifted (50,40);

This does mean that you have to convert file.eps to file.pdf. (You also
need to look up the dimensions of your file.)
