-distplot- is a user-written command, last revised in SJ 3-2.

The help for -distplot- includes a pointer to general -graph-
options. These include -graph save- and -graph combine- as usual.
Thus produce your desired -distplot-s, save and combine.

However, another comment: -distplot- was designed to allow
multiple cdfs to be drawn in one graph. Comparing functions
drawn in the same graph is usually easier than comparing them
on graphs presented side-by-side.
