Cairo terminals are broken in gnuplot 4.6.2 and cvs. They show no text, or text that is way too small to be readable.
I use OS X 10.8.3 and got gnuplot installed via homebrew using the following commands:
4.6.2 via
brew install gnuplot --cairo --latex --pdf --qt --with-x --without-emacs --wx
cvs via:
brew install gnuplot --cairo --latex --pdf --qt --with-x --without-emacs --wx --HEAD
here comes the output of the show version longcommand in gnuplot.

gnuplot> show version long

I attach two files zipped together, one per gnuplot version, which contain the scripts used and the resulting output files.

    ops, I forgot:
    pango: stable 1.34.0
    cairo: stable 1.12.14
    glib: stable 2.36.0

    and I remove the patch lines from the homebrew gnuplot formula, since they are no more needed.

    They're definitely not nearly as broken as you claim them to be. E.g. the pdfcairo terminal of the MS Windows binary of 4.6pl2 that's being prepared works just fine.

    Ok, so where does the bug rely? Where should I dig to understand it better and get the cairo terminals to work on OS X, too?
