I guess all I can really say is that I was able to compile PLplot 5.3.1 on my iMac at home, which is running OS-X 10.3.7 / Darwin 7.7.0, and on an iMac at work which has a similar version of OS-X. The only "unusual" thing about them is that I'd installed a fortran compiler (g77) on them, but it looks like you have that as well. Sorry I can't offer more help. If it would be useful to you I can send you the results of running configure & make.
