Aha! O.k., I am using GRASS GIS:
a nice open source GIS system.

That can be done with GRASS using the "v.digit" tool.

Yes, I know that CDROM. In fact, it's useless. You could just look at
these data, nothing else.

Usually I use GRASS and export the data to XFIG (a CorelDraw Clone).
The GRASS module "v.out.xfig" export vector data, raster data can be
exported in several image formats like tif, png etc.
Recently an export script from GRASS to GMT was in the GRASS mailing
list. So it could be done by scripts as well.
