Create an eps file, then use eps2pgf (http://sourceforge.net/projects/eps2pgf/) to convert to a pgf file to be included in your LaTeX file (via \input{}). You need to use the pgf package in your LaTeX file, but then all the graphics are done internally using by default the same fonts as the rest of the document. You can also do psfrag like replacements when converting the file to include LaTeX commands.

Hope this helps,
