Thanks.  Come to think of it, I am probably taking a round-about route:  I
would create tex and figure files using xfig.  I would compile and do
"dvips -E" to produce eps file.  I would then do epstopdf to produce pdf
file.  I assume that it is possible to produce a pdf file directly from
tex and figure files.  But I don't know how to specify the bounding box to
the figure.  If I use the default pdf option, I get a complete page with a
lot of space around the figure.

gnuplot also creates a tex file.
