You can also set the image's size in Gnuplot. Then the text size will  
be in a reasonable relation to the image's size. Why can't you produce  
Gnuplot output of the right size?

With a tool like Adobe Illustrator you can deconstruct and edit PDF  
files. You could also convert PDF to PS with ghostscript's pdf2ps and  
edit the PS file with some text editor. Then convert to PDF.
