A cursory search reveals more plotting tools and libraries than you can shake
a stick at.  Having no experience with any of them, I'm at a loss to suggest
any particular one.  I'm also not familiar enough with EMBOSS' plotting
requirements to make a feature-by-feature comparison and see which would
suffice.  And finally, I don't know which ones you may already have tried and
discarded.  :-)
