Ok, thanks for the answers.
I've been using PLplot with Cairo but as I said in my mails I have had some questions about the implementation of PLcairo and PLplot. This is what leaded me to a potential alternative: PLplotCanvas.
Anyway, I think that I'll stick to the combination Plplot/Cairo/GTK.
Anyway, thanks again for your time.

I'm trying to compile and use this example from the plplot documentation
that enables one to directly use PLplot inside a GTK widget:
removed as of 5.9.6 (see any of the release announcements from 5.9.3
through 5.9.6 for the reasons.) However, when that decision was made,
I just plain forgot that the above part of our documentation which should
have had a deprecation notice as of 5.9.3 and should been been removed
completely as of 5.9.6. Sorry you were mislead by my oversight.
There are other ways to use PLplot from a GTK widget that have been
recently discussed here. See examples/c/README.cairo for a description
of two proof-of-concept examples which might give you some useful
