Follow-up Comment #1, bug #30500 (project octave):

Currently print.m, and __go_draw_axis__.m use gnuplot's internal Symbol font
for special symbol handling. The Symbol font lacks the sun symbol, and
probably many others as well.

One way to implement these missing symbols is to preload the computer modern
fonts(cmex, cmsy, and etc) on a postscript terminal with 'fontfile add'
option. And in __setup_sym_table__, translate the latex codes into the
corresponding computer modern encodings. It would be the best if octave also
distribute these fonts together - if they are free to redistribute.
