well ... the results are unexpected (or may be expected considering how things are going for me) :P

-DENABLE_DYN_DRIVERS=OFF option does nothing to suppress the unexpected termination when running mingw32-make command. 
the PKG_CONFIG_PATH warning was suppressed
and I made the edit to my DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX (that did NOT change my cmap0 experience).

I agree with you Werner that it would be great to know what it is looking for ... however ...

should the *.pal files be there in C:\plplot\data only or also be present in C:\plplot\buildmingw\data?

I noted that my config.h file (in C:\plplot\buildmingw) has these lines:
#define PL_DEFAULT_CMAP0_FILE "cmap0_default.pal"
#define PL_DEFAULT_CMAP1_FILE "cmap1_default.pal"

Are these kosher?  since no path is present, where does it seek the same?

Thanks for your patience!

Hi Ankur,

one more thing:

-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:\plplot is a very bad idea, since you install
the plplot install files into your source directory. This would be better

-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=c:\plplot\buildming\install

This could be the reason of your cmap file problems, don't know - maybe
it tries to copy files in the data directory in the same files,
corrupting them. But in any way, it's no good to install the files into
your source directory. Delete your source directory and fetch a new one.

To run the examples you don't need to install plplot anyway. They run
fine in the build tree (-DBUILD_TEST=ON is for that purpose).

HTH,
Werner
