Two possibilities are xfig and pstricks.  I'm working on a paper and
using xfig for the geometry diagrams - it's nice because it is
extremely precise, with a grid system and editing.  One can export the
results as an eps that works just fine in LaTeX.  Pstricks can be used
directly in LaTeX and it's quite powerful.  Of course you have to
build the entire figure in either of these systems.  (To find them,
just google for xfig and pstricks.)
