Use -set graphics off-  This still produces an exportable graph:


****
sysuse auto, clear
set graphics on
gr bar rep78, name(g1, replace)
graph export "g1.eps", as(eps) replace

**g2.eps is created without drawing the graph:
set graphics off
gr bar rep78, name(g2, replace)
graph export "g2.eps", as(eps) replace


set graphics on
****
I'm using Stata 12 MP on Mac OSX - I have no idea if this works on other versions/systems.
