I'm a big fan of IPE. You can get GUI drawing and embed latex directly. I haven't used it for a while, though. It seems to be neglected on the mac, but is still nice. jfig is a continued development of xfig, but with reduced export options. I like to be able to get to metapost in many cases because you can "hand code" details and tweaks, so I go to xfig sometimes as well. I do hand-code metapost from time to time.
