 Replying to [ticket:46942 michaelld@…]:
 > The configure patch from 4.6.6 was not ported to 5.0.0, so gnuplot now
 fails to find the Aquaterm header, but does not fail building; it just
 does not support the "aqua" terminal even with the +aquaterm set.

 It's not that I didn't port it. But I'm unable to reproduce the failure.

 generic since it's a compiler arguments issue rather than OS related).

 I tried to convince the upstream to support `--with-aquaterm=PATH`, but
 they didn't understand my patch and they thought it was too complicated.
 Eventually they started supporting `--with[out]-aquaterm` in some very
 limited way. Maybe someone should ask the autotools developers to
 introduce a macro to search for frameworks on Mac.

 I could reintroduce the previous patch in MacPorts, but I first need to
 understand why this approach doesn't work for you.

 I did.
 configure.cflags-append     "-F${frameworks_dir}"
 configure.ldflags-append    "-F${frameworks_dir}"
 What I don't understand is why your compiler doesn't find the framework
 despite `-F/opt/local/Library/Frameworks`. After all my patch for
 `configure` didn't do anything else but add that flag, except maybe to a
 different location.
