You can use -legend(order(...)) to rename the legend text.  I no
longer have 9 installed, but at least in version 10, there is a format
option for -blabel-.

For example:
sysuse auto

graph bar (mean) mpg gear trunk,  ///
 over(fore) blabel(bar, format(%9.1f)) legend(order(1 "Mileage" 2
"Gear Ratio" 3 "Trunk Space"))
