if you don't use fink (or X11), there is a site with good  
instructions at
http://www.lee-phillips.org/info/Macintosh/gnuplot.html  ("Here it is").
As far as I remember, building it from sources was no problem at all  
(maybe using some ./configure options). I've been using Gnuplot 4.0  
with X11 as well as Aquaterm for quite some time now, works great.
