Hi Klaus,

You can render all of the text in your plot in the desired LaTeX font
using the writepsfrag command (available on SSC). For example:

sysuse auto, clear
hist mpg, by(foreign)
graph export test.eps, as(eps)
writepsfrag test.eps using test.tex, body(document)

Compiling test.tex (DVI --> PostScript --> PDF) we see that all the
text in test.eps is rendered in the standard LaTeX font. To change the
font, we could for example add to the top of the document
\renewcommand\familydefault{\sfdefault} and recompile.

Best,

Ryan Kessler
