It will probably require some hacking and recompiling to make xfig work
in 0.1 inch instead of 1/16 inch steps.
If you are doing PCB designs, as your post implies, may I suggest that
you have a look at the pcb programme by Thomas Nau of rz.uni-ulm.de.
An archie search for pcb-1.4.0.tar.gz should locate a suitable site
to get a copy from.
Whilst not answering your question, this may solve your problem.
