[PLUG] using Xfig with LaTeX

beating around my thesis, i am trying several methods of including
Xfig drawings in LaTeX. currently, i am using fig2dev to create .eps
file, which I \psfig into the document. nevertheless, while the result
is fine, mpage seems unable to handle the documents and corrupts the
.ps file right around the included picture (which is rotated 90
degrees by mpage). furthermore, latex2html can't extract a single of
these pictures and just reports errors, leaving .png files of zero
length everywhere.

so i am interested to hear how you guys embed .fig files in latex with
the ability to scale them to a certain width. and yes, it should be a
batch process to be run from Makefile.
