It seems to me that your installed pgplot package _may_ not include the c
library interface, as explained in Emmanuel's FAQ at


(at "Something seems to be missing in my pgplot. What's wrong with it ?")

This will likely require you to recompile pgplot and perl-PGPLOT packages.

You are right, it seems that all needed packages are there.

Try removing the pgplot and perl-PGPLOT packages and recompile from
sources. Let us know if you have success or not. Do not hesitate to
contact me for further help in this process.
