I don't see how you can do this with xfig, either.  I managed to do it 
with Create by overlapping two circles, then using two filled sectors 
with no stroke (one from each side) to show the intersection (at least, 
I think it was an intersection :).  Create is non-free, but you can get 
a fully functional demo.
