sci-visualization/gnuplot[pdf] is currently linking against pdflib.
I'm going to remove that dependency, because in my understanding,
clause 2.1 of the PDFLite license does not allow such linking.
(It allows it for programs under an OSI approved license. However, the
gnuplot license is free, but not OSI approved.)
