Hi Wolfgang,
I also prefer having the fontsize in figures equal to that of the surrounding

To do that, you really need the "special" flag switched on for strings in 
xfig. If you did not do it in your xfig files, you can change it quite 
efficiently using "update" functionality in xfig gui, or by a script on raw 
xfig file format. All strings are terminated by \001 so it is easy to detect 
them and the special flag is just one of the numbers in front of the text. Do 
not remember which one, you can easily find it out by diffing two files, one 
with and one without the special flag.

As a second step, redefine latex macro SetFigFont in the preamble:
depending on the xfig version. Check one of your .pdftex_t file which version 
is used in it.

Then, all texts will be typeset by the active font in latex.

Hope this helps,
