When I ./configure the current CVS version with
"--program-suffix=-suffix", the file gnuplot_x11 is renamed
to gnuplot_x11-suffix, but gnuplot still searches for
gnuplot_x11, which, of course, fails.

    IMHO, gnuplot_x11 shouldn't be subject to the transformation at all ---
    it's already installed in a private place, so there's no real need to rename
    it.

    To work around this, it should help to add
    -DGNUPLOT_X11=\"gnuplot_x11-suffix\" to the compile's CFLAGS.
    x11.trm checks that macro, but it's not set anywhere in the source.

    I concur.

    The only way to address this in gnuplot's Makefiles is to
    write out
    an explicit install target for gnuplot_x11 that omits the
    $(transform)
    step.

    I don't like the idea of doing this.

    As part of preparing for a 4.2 release, I want to make it clear
    what is and is not still on my (sfeam) MUST DO list. This patch
    is not on that list. If you think it should be, please speak up
    quickly.

    Many of these bugs are stale and can be closed out altogether.
