I had exactly this issue when I was tutoring a group of Computability Theory students. I found that only GNU Pic gave good results. You can embed pic inline in LaTeX documents and have it render properly but it's probably better results to use a Makefile and run pic/groff to get EPS files.
P.S. thanks for all the planner-mode help... I am up and running!!
