Googling suggests that this may be helpful:

Since that's MATLAB code, it's likely to work in Octave (the free Matlab
quasi-clone). I haven't tried it, but it's the first thing I would try if I
needed to create a Smith chart.

Other fairly obvious possibilities would be Gnuplot or MetaPost. And if I
was really desperate, raw MetaFont or PostScript.

It's even possible that plotting options in something like
OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice could do the job, but that's just a wild guess.
