Thanks to all who responded. A short report of my adventures
in CAD land:

* Inkscape. After two hours of trying I still can't draw a simple
rectangle. It gets filled (in blue) and all attempts to change
that have failed.

* Qcad. Some very nice and unique features. Several problems:
- It doesn't seem to use anything but 'plotter fonts' (i.e.
just lines),
- It doesn't seem to have arrows on lines
- It doesn't seem to have a concept of a 'path', I've not
been able to create e.g, a series of connected lines, move
a point and keep the lines connected,
- Printing to PS works, but the layout in the print preview
doesn't correspond to the output. No EPS, so converting to
PDF produces a full page and not a figure that can be inserted
into a pdflatex document.

* Xfig crashed within five minutes.
* Xcircuit segfaulted within three minutes.

The others I have still to try.

Ciao,
