I had difficulties including figures created with xfig in latex;  
specifically, some text wouldn't show.  Simply replacing Ghostscript 7 
with the earlier version (both installed via Fink) solved all the 
problems.  Of course, since I don't know why 6 worked while 7 didn't, 
there might be a workaround for using 7.
