Is there not some vector drawing program that could be used on the iMac and the resulting drawings saved as EPS or PostScript or ....? If there is, I'd appreciate a hint.

I would recommend having a look at http://www.inkscape.org/ for a nice "Illustrator" like package.
You can export .eps or .pdf and you can read the .pdf file directly or the .eps file indirectly into a pdflatex'd document with the assistance of the package epstopdf.
