This is whatever is trying to convert your picture.

This is ImageMagick complaining about your pict file. From this, it 
seems that ImageMagick is installed correctly.

This is the program that called ImageMagick noticing ImageMagick failed 
but erroneously concluding (with a ?) that ImageMagick might not be 

It might be that fink installs ImageMagick differently (e.g. with X11 
support or with a different 'color map') and that this will therefore 
work under fink. But it might also be that your .pict file is 
incompatible with ImageMagick. I would like to know.

Could you send me variation2Fig1.pict?
