Yes, that was Matt who told you about the filtering to get a sine from a square wave; unfortunately he forgot to tell you how to do this. :-)
Well, it's not easy. A 1kHz square wave will have a 3kHz harmonic with 1/3 amplitude, a 5kHz with 1/5 amplitude, etc. That's a lot of energy in the harmonics which you want to get rid of. You need a sharp low-pass filter to be sure that the 3kHz is attenuated enough. That's possible, but not so easy to make it variable; for the 2kHz sine you want a higher cut-off frequency.
The plot shows that the signal still looks more like a square wave than a sine even with all except the third of the harmonics removed.
All this suggests that this may be an easy approach to generate different crystal-stable frequencies from a single 12MHz oscillator, but not sines. For sines there are analog solutions like the Wien bridge, but these aren't so frequency stable.
Like I said in my other answer DDS really is the way to go; you get the best result for the money. If you don't want to use a microcontroller you can use a lookup ROM programmed with a sine waveform, let a counter run over all addresses, and feed the output to a DAC. That requires a little bit of logic, but no uC. The clock you use for the counter will be a multiple of the sine, so feeding a different clock frequency will give you a different sine frequency.
All this said, this may cost as much as a microcontroller; there's no reason to dismiss a microcontroller because it would be too expensive. uCs are dirt cheap these days and often a more economical solution that analog alternatives. You won't find anything simpler than Jesper's generator (was linked here http://www.myplace.nu/avr/minidds/index.htm, link now broken)
If you want to generate the 5 signals simultaneously and mix them the DDS solution is even more cost-effective: you'll need only one (1), vs 5 oscillators in an analog solution.
If you only need 5 fixed frequencies you might want to switch them on and off selectively, so that you can mix them. Easy with the DSS uC: instead of keeping one phase accumulator (expensive word for "counter"), you just keep 5 of them, and add the sine values before sending them to the external DAC. You could use 5 switches to turn them on and off. You don't need the MAX232 then. Like I said: cheap.
