That's very interesting, because my Stata 9.2 returns the following:

. sysuse auto

. graph set eps logo off

. graph set ps logo off

. twoway scatter price mpg

. graph export test.eps, pagesize(a4)
option pagesize() not allowed

. graph export, pagesize(a4)
(file written in PostScript format)

StataCorp advised me to use the latter code rather than the former,
and perhaps this is why. In any case, after exporting the graph as .ps
file, it's only a very short step to open up the graph to view it in
the freeware GSView program, click on "File", then "PS to EPS", ensure
that the 'Automatically calculate Bounding Box' is ticked, click the
"Yes" button, and then you're ready to include the graph in your LaTeX
document. That worked for me, and so did Michael Hanson's very helpful
-graph set- solution; thanks to him, I can now remove the Stata logo
when it pleases me.

Thanks very much!
