There is a rather straightforward way to add text to an .eps figure. Here 
is an example, using psfig:

\begin{picture} (325,325)
\caption{Average Contributions over Time}
Note that 325pt is approximately 4.5in.
I put four little circles near the four corners of the figure. I would 
print this, then use the four circles to locate exactly where you want your 
text, and then add the text and get rid of the circles.
