Hello all:

I am beginning to explore the use of pgf/TikZ to put figures into my  
TeX documents (using TeXShop as the front-end).  To plot functions,  
it appears that GNUPLOT needs to be installed.  I did a little Google  
searching and one website stated that GNUPlot requires AquaTerm  
(which I have no idea what that is).  Can anyone give a  
recommendation for the best/simplest way to install and configure  
GNUPLOT if the only thing I want to do with it is use it with pgf/ 
TikZ?  Just download it from SourceForge and compile?  Do I need to  
make sure it is installed anyplace specific for pgf/TikZ to see it,  
or does the compilation take care of that?
