Yes, but my point was in response to a question about arranging for
things to "just work" if the user sets gnuplot_binary, which seems
difficult to do without some ugly kluge like resetting PATH based on
the value of gnuplot_binary.  So telling the user that he may also
need to set his PATH appropriately in addition to setting
gnuplot_binary is not entirely satisfactory...

On the other hand, the new gnuplot is likely to be in
the same bin directory as gnuplot_x11, no?  In which
case the user only needs to modify PATH, and not
set gnuplot_binary in octave. Could we put that hint
with the help for gnuplot_binary?
