I was able to get gnudatalanguage +gshhs to successfully build on both my
Mavericks systems with the gcc48 compeller.

gnudatalanguage @0.9.4_3+gshhs (active) platform='darwin 13' archs=Œx86_64¹

(you have to manually get the GSHHS tarballs)

However, when doing a trivial x-y plot I was met with the following error:

GDL> plot, indgen(10)
% PLplot installation lacks the requested driver: xwin
% Execution halted at: $MAIN$

My PLPLOT install is below:

plplot @5.9.9_19+aquaterm+gcc48+x11 (active) platform='darwin 13'

In JFGI-ing the error, Ubuntu scored a similar error at one point with the
directive being to also install plplot11-driver-xwin, which we don¹t have.
