Martin,

I wrote a little .ado file that -graph export-s to .eps and calls 
eps2pdf (http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/support/eps2pdf/) to convert 
the .eps file to .pdf (using the same fine name), which I then include 
for use with pdfLaTeX

------epspdf.ado-------------

cap prog drop epspdf
prog define epspdf
syntax anything [, replace]

if "`replace'"=="replace" {
				capture erase "`1'.pdf"
				}
graph export "`1'.eps", `replace'
winexec "C:\program files\eps2pdf\eps2pdf.exe" /f="`1'"
di as text "(file `1'.eps converted to PDF format)"
end
---------------------

example:


. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. twoway scatter price mpg

. epspdf "C:/temp/test_graph" , replace
(note: file C:/temp/test_graph.eps not found)
(file C:/temp/test_graph.eps written in EPS format)
(file C:/temp/test_graph.eps converted to PDF format)


Best,
Antoine
