Description Helmut Jarausch 2013-01-10 20:57:39 UTC
Tk 8.6 breaks sci-libs/plplot like many other packages.

Perhaps one should open a tracker for Tk8.6

Unfortunately, plplot-5.9.10-tcltk.patch fails to apply here.

I've applied the changes "by hand" giving the new patch which I have appended.
This applies cleanly and the packages builds successfully.
