I've followed the instructions on (Technique 1)

to install Octave on Windows XP using Cygwin.  Still, it is not quite
clear to me what is the proper way to set up the graphical output.

If I fire up my cygwin environment, then i get a bash shell.  Within
that bash shell, i start up Octave, and apparently, it is version 2.1.49
that is included in my freshly installed Cygwin distribution.

If i want to plot something, of course i don't get any output and my
Octave complains about pgnuplot not being found.
I *do* have gnuplot version 3.8j in my cygwin installation, and I also have
X.  But what is the proper way to set up things so i have graphical output on
Windows XP?  How do i make octave, gnuplot and X talk to each other so i
get what i want, namely some nice data-plots :-)

The wiki is not so clear on this...
