'fig2ps' converts xfig files to PS or PDF, processing text using LaTeX. It is intended to help typeset good quality documents, where the font on the pictures is exactly the same as the font in the text. You compile the picture only once and not every time you compile your LaTeX file (as with other xfig exporters such as eepic); this makes it much faster with complex pictures. It should work with LyX.
