xfig and transfig maintainer here.

I am not really sure what the question is, but as the poster points out, there
are unfixed bugs for xfig and transfig. I have exams coming up (it is that
time of year again). I can work on Debian after June, but I am going to have
to leave it for now. 

I am afraid that xfig and transfig are not really the right packages for me. I
hardly use X anymore, and I do not know enough X code to understand all of the
xfig code.

So if somebody wants theses packages they can have them. On a side note,
somebody is working on a portuguese translation of xfig.
