You could try graphics/xfig if you want an interactive graphical
program. Or cad/qcad for a real 2D drafting program.

For very accurate file-based drawing you could try the metapost
programming language {name of the binary: mpost(1)
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MetaPost]}, available from the
print/teTeX-base port. Or the Asymptote language from the math/asymptote
port.  [http://asymptote.sourceforge.net/].
