I am using CentOS 5.5, and seems most repository only provides binaries for gnuplot 4.0.0. I need to use gnuplot 4.2.4 or above, and when I try to run ./configure and then make, it is giving me the following error:

...
Making all in lisp
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/stactest/gnuplot-4.2.4/lisp'
xemacs -batch -q -no-site-file -l ./dot.el -f batch-byte-compile gnuplot.el
xemacs: error while loading shared libraries: libXaw.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [gnuplot.elc] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/stactest/gnuplot-4.2.4/lisp'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/stactest/gnuplot-4.2.4'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I checked yum and I do have libXaw.x86_64 installed. What else am I missing?

    That seems to be an error from xemacs, not from gnuplot's build process per se. Fortunately, unless you plan to run gnuplot from inside emacs this part of the configuration is not needed. Please try again after configuring with:

    ./configure --without-lisp-files

    Thank you Ethan for the quick reply!!!! And you are correct, it's an xemacs error. After fixing emac itself all seems to be compiling. Thanks!
