I usually cheat: I put the figures in a table, with extra labels, and
referencing those in the main caption:

\begin{figure}
\begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{c@{\hspace*{\fill}}c}
\includegraphics{bogus1} & \includegraphics{bogus2} \\
(a) & (b)\\
\includegraphics{bogus3} & \includegraphics{bogus4} \\
(c) & (d)
\end{tabular*}
\caption[short]{long, referencing the (manual) (a), (b) etc.}
\end{figure}

Hope this helps. There are neater solutions, especially if you need
the figures to be vertically aligned, and the columns have the same
width, see the tex FAQ for pointers (http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/
texfaq2html?introduction=yes)
