First, try it with -R0 and see if that solves it.  RedHat made some
changes (I need to take a look at them) that, I believe, close some
security holes by preventing such execution, but I think -R0 will
say, I know what I'm doing, let it happen.

I've got to spend some time working on this.

By the way, you might want to go ahead and use something like

\DeclareGraphicsRule{.jpg}{eps}{.jpg.bb}{`/usr/bin/jpeg2ps -r0 #1}

because it will both make it certain that it's picking up the
correct binary, and eliminate the path question you have.

RedHat is mostly concerned about dvips as a print spooler, and I
agree with their concerns, but if you invoke it from the command
line, one would think it would be a little more flexible.
