Get  1.1.0 as 1.0.1 does not work with 10.6


If you compile gnuplot 4.4.3
after you install AT 1.1.0 the default terminal will be aqua

Alternatively you can get a binary with Octave 3.4.0


but it will use X11 (aqua will not be available). But X11 is also very decent.

PS As gnuplot needed for extended features in pgf/tikz it is not exactly OT
