I suggest that we check in this patch into the stable branch.

     It is a bug in the configure script.  The plotutils manual
     mentions that -lpng -lz might be necessary, but we don't check
     for it.
     Do you want to file a bug report?  It would be helpful.
     The plotutils description of how to link against it is awfully
            To link your application with GNU `libplot', you would use the
         appropriate `-l' option(s) on the command line when compiling it.  You
         would use
              -lplot -lXaw -lXmu -lXt -lXext -lX11 -lpng -lz -lm
         or, in recent releases of the X Window System,
              -lplot -lXaw -lXmu -lXt -lSM -lICE -lXext -lX11 -lpng -lz -lm
         These linking options assume that your version of `libplot' has been
         compiled with PNG support; if not, you would omit the `-lpng -lz'
            As an alternative to the preceding, you may need to use `-lplot -lXm
         -lXt -lXext -lX11 -lpng -lz -lm', `-lplot -lXm -lXt -lXext -lX11 -lpng
         -lz -lm -lc -lgen', or `-lplot -lXm -lXt -lXext -lX11 -lpng -lz -lm -lc
         -lPW', on systems that provide Motif widgets instead of Athena widgets.
         In recent releases of the X Window System, you would insert `-lSM
         -lICE'.  Recent releases of Motif require `-lXp' and possibly `-lXpm'
         as well.)
            On some platforms, the directories in which `libplot' or the other
         libraries are stored must be specified on the command line.
         For example, the options `-lXaw -lXmu -lXt -lSM -lICE -lXext -lX11',
         which specify X Window System libraries, may need to be preceded by an
         option like `-L/usr/X11/lib'.
