Michel, a long time ago you had started this email thread saying
that libplot didn't link properly in recent snapshots.  Do you
still see problems with libplot on the stable branch, or in
0.6.2-pre6?  If so we should fix it.

It isn't important to fix libplot problems on master, since
libplot won't be used by 0.7.x.
