Hi Rob,

Sorry that RHEL causes this kind of trouble...

I don't have RHEL available here and therefore concentrated my rpm efforts around CentOS and Scientific Linux that are RHEL derivates - and my solution for those platforms includes the addition of the EPEL repository (see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL) to the target machine. As far as I know all dependencies should resolve once that repository is added.

Did you try enabling that repo on your RHEL box?

There are a couple of annoying sticking points with a RHEL 6.4 rpm install.

Libgd.so.2 is not included as part of the standard rpms (for some reason) and the standard gnuplot install rpm is irritatingly called gnuplot44.

Both these break the install.
After hunting around you can find a gnuplot install for CentOS 6.4 and a suitable libgd.

It takes a bit longer than you would like though.
Can the rpm be made to look for the alternative gnuplot44 as well as gnuplot
Can some instructions regarding libgd be placed somewhere
