To be honest, I never ever used xfig in my life, and didn't
try incremental gnuplot figures yet. So I can only comment
on the texpower part...

I see four different possible ways:

a) export to metapost, embed the metapost code with emp and
   insert \step commands wherever you want
b) use the xfig patch for generating different mpost figures
   (dunno how this works).
c) export from xfig to eepic and insert steps in the eepic
   code (don't know whether this has enough expressive power
   for your pictures).
   Unfortunately, xfig doesn't seem to support PSTricks export.
d) export from gnuplot to PSTricks and add \steps and any
   decoration directly into the PSTricks code (xfig not
   used here).
