I'm afraid that you'd have to write one... It shouldn't be all that
difficult to model something on the PicTex driver by changing the TeX
commands into the Fig-format file entries, but it isn't an afternoons
work either.  And, as someone already said, you my want to try
pstoedit first.

Older version of GS certainly do cause trouble. I haven't seen it with
the newer versions (yet?).
