for getting "aqua" as default terminal in gnuplot it is useful to  
just set the required environment variable. If you use tcsh as shell,  
just edit the file ".tcshrc" inside your home folder and add the  
following line:

setenv GNUTERM aqua

if you use bash *this is the defult at least under 10.4.x, isn't it? 
*, you add the following to ".profile" in your home folder:

export GNUTERM=aqua

then start your shell (if you have a shell-window already open, just  
type "rehash" inside to reload the configuration file).
