VD - I don't think it's possible right now in gchart hbar, without using annotate.
There's an open R&D request in to consider adding this feature, and I've added a link to this thread so the developers will know there is customer interest in this capability.

With SAS9.3 release, you can do this using the SGPLOT procedure by overlaying a scatter plot with MarkerChar option on a VBarParm statement. You would need to compute where to place the label since the bar is stacked, so it is similar to annotate. For prior release, you will have to use annotate.

Not to worry - using annotate is not that difficult!
Here's a bit of sample code to get you started...
data my_anno; set sashelp.class;
xsys='2'; ysys='2'; when='a';
function='label'; position='4'; text=name;
proc gchart data=sashelp.class anno=my_anno;
