Your best bet is probably to find a vector graphics program that does
layers. Open your bitmapped graphic in one layer and create a new drawing
layer above it and then trace it. When you are through tracing it, delete
the original layer.
It's a lot of work, but I've seen some amazing AutoCAD stuff done like that
working from photographs.
