It is true that there's an undeclared dependency on emacs to build the
gnuplot-mode elisp. Really, we ought to build gnuplot-mode as a
separate port. I filed that as
a while back.

I haven't had a chance to fix it (and certainly wouldn't complain if
someone else wants to!). It hasn't been an especially high priority
because, as others have noted, it does build on a normal system without
the emacs port installed.
