CTAN has a new package: svg-inkscape
This work demonstrates the use of SVG images in LaTeX documents. Using the PDF + LaTeX output option of Inkscape 0.48, it is possible to include SVG images in LaTeX and have LaTeX typeset the text. This results in the same text style in the images as in the text. Moreover, LaTeX commands can be used in the image's text, such as math or references. The document also describes how to automate the conversion from SVG to PDF+LaTeX using Inkscape.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/svg-inkscape . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/svg-inkscape (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

svg-inkscape – How to include an SVG image in LaTeX using Inkscape
The document demonstrates the use of SVG images in LaTeX documents. Using the “PDF+LaTeX output” option of Inkscape, it is possible to include SVG in documents, in which LaTeX typesets the text. This results in uniform text style throughout the document, including text in images; moreover, LaTeX commands may be used in the image’s text, providing such things as mathematics and references.
The document also describes how to automate the conversion from SVG to PDF+LaTeX using Inkscape.
