Sure do. !!!

--- at least if you want your graph to be typeset within a TeX
or LaTeX document.

( If you want it in Mathematica, you'll have to wait for the next
revision --- version 2.3  or version 3, or whatever it may be. )

Far and away the best-quality/most versatile method is provided
by one feature of the  Xy-pic macros for drawing high-quality
diagrams in TeX and LaTeX.

Mind you, this is a big package --- almost as big as LaTeX itself.

( The command  \xyimport  is designed to incorporate a graphic,
at the same time providing a convenient coordinate system
so that any labelling or high-lighting of features at any location,
can be done using TeX's and Xy-pic's full typesetting capabilities. )

Check out the Web pages at:

http://www.diku.dk/research-groups/topps/personal/kris/Xy-pic.html

(Denmark) or (Australia)

http://www.mpce.mq.edu.au/~ross/Xy-pic.html

At either of these you can peruse the User's Guide online.

However this does not discuss the  \xyimport  command.
For this you want the Reference Manual, Chapter 15.
There is a (highly non-trivial) example of the use of
Xy-pic with a Mathematica-generated PostScript graphic.

ftp://ftp.diku.dk/diku/users/kris/TeX/
or
ftp://ftp.mpce.mq.edu.au/pub/maths/TeX/

or from CTAN archives, in the directory:

/tex-archive/macros/generic/diagrams/xypic

If you are already a TeX-user and want to include high-quality,
well-labelled graphics in your documents, then Xy-pic is exactly
the tool for you.

( Yes, it is fully compatible with Plain-TeX, LaTeX (old and new),
AMS-TeX, AMS-LaTeX, and most other commonly-used macro packages. )

Enjoy,

Ross Moore
