PicTeX may be one way of incorporating S graphics (I don't think it
exists in R yet) into LaTeX documents but I think there are better
ways. 

Assuming you will eventually print the document on a PostScript
printer, a good way of incorporating graphics into a document is to use
the postscript device driver in R
 postscript(file = ...)
then insert the PostScript figure using the graphicx package in LaTeX.
The graphics and graphicsx packages are available at any CTAN archive
site.

There are several LaTeX packages for inclusion of PostScript figures
(psfig, epsf, ...) but the graphics and graphicsx packages seem to be
the most recent and most powerful.
