Description Maxim Kammerer 2012-07-10 07:22:34 UTC
sci-visualization/gnuplot is a completely optional dependency of sci-libs/libqalculate -- gnuplot will be used if found, but is not required for correct operation. Since gnuplot is a heavy dependency, I suggest either splitting it into a USE flag, or notifying the user about the possibility to install gnuplot pkg_postinst().

Propably shouldn't have needed a revision bump, but being extra safe...
