The exteps package supports the inclusion of eps files in MetaPost.
About the best way to convert png to eps I don't know and the UK-TeX-FAQ
doesn't seem to address that issue.  But maybe others can give some

Alternatively, would it be possible to generate the external graphic in
vector format?  Since you're speaking about png instead of jpg at least
it doesn't seem to be a photo image.

Best regards,
