Which version of Debian and the plplot packages are you using?  The
octave-plplot package 5.2.1-13 in Debian sid (unstable) seems to be working
fine.  If you are using Debian sarge (testing), there is an apt-getable
repository at:

However, the octave-plplot package there does not work with otctave-2.1.36
(the current sarge version), because of libstdc++ incompatibilites.  As soon
as octave2.1_2.1.49 will reach sarge, I will upload a new set of PLplot
packages to the above repository.

At any rate, using the drop-in PLplot replacement in Debian should be as
simple as:

    $ apt-get install octave-plplot
    $ octave
    octave:1> toggle_plplot_use
    Use PLplot: on    
    octave:2> plot (randn (10, 1))
