#735 mgnuplot script not executable (permission bit turned off)

The mgnuplot script (plotting/mgnuplot) isn't
executable -- the x permission bit is turned off. So
attempting a plot fails after set_plot_option
([plot_format,mgnuplot]) .

chmod a+x plotting/mgnuplot, then trying again yields
success.

Will CVS preserve permission bits? I wonder.

    Since mgnuplot is a generated file, it's not a cvs problem.
    When mgnuplot is generated by make from mgnuplot.in, the x
    bit should be set. mgnuplot is indeed marked executable by
    make install, so the lack of x bit is only a problem in
    developer sandboxes. Not sure if we should bother to fix this.

    As indicated in the last posting this seems not to be a bug for a Maxima user.
    I can run mgnuplot without any problems on a Linux system with a built from the CVS code.
    Setting the status to pending and the resolution to "works for me".
