I'm not sure it fits what you are trying to achieve, but I do all my 
drawing-stuff in ipe (graphics/ipe ). All my documents are typesetted 
using LaTeX, ipe has build in LaTeX support for it's text formatting so 
for me it is an ideal program. It's a relatively simple editor so I'm 
not sure if it suffices your needs but you may give it a try. It's a 
shame the FreeBSD port's version is so old (6.0-pre23 while the current 
version is allready  6.0-pre31 (or even 6.0-pre32 I'm not sure) though.
