please try using set mode metafile / cancel mode metafile for your
graphics. You need to process the metafiles with the Fprint program.

    set mode metafile
    set viewport left
    let xx=0.1*x - 5
    plot /x=0:100 sin(xx)

    set viewport right
    plot /x=0:100 cos(xx)/(1+xx^2)

    cancel mode metafile

then in the shell run the following command:

     Fprint -l cps -p portrait -o test.ps metafile.plt

For me this produces a valid postscript file.  I crop the boundaries

     cat test.ps | ps2eps -B > test.eps

and convert to pdf with

     epstopdf test.eps

If you don't have the programs ps2eps or epstopdf, try installing them
from your linux distribution.  On Ubuntu the packages are called
'ps2eps' and 'texlive-font-utils', respectively.
