Is it fine to keep posting in -bugs or do you want these back at -devel?

When I install the MacPorts 'gnuplot' package, it installs two binaries gnuplot 
and gnuplot_x11 …

On account of prior limitations with python26 not respecting the MacPorts 
build_arch flag (therefore ignoring any dependents which can only be compiled 
in 32 bit) and wxwidget limitations when I built my MacPorts, I am using GNUmed 
in X11 and so I expect my GNUmed should try to call gnuplot_x11?

The installed-binaries locations are


and a plain text settings file for the x11 version gets installed in


So my questions are:

1) should I add to my PATH


2) is there anything about the default settings (see below) which looks like 
any problem?

3) do you think GNUmed should have any adjustment for this gnuplot_x11 or in 
place of adjusting gnumed should I create a symlink

        gnuplot --> gnuplot_x11

somewhere in my PATH? (I am assuming this will let GNUmed try to "call" gnuplot 
without having to know the call will be routed to gnuplot_x11?)
