Follow-up Comment #1, bug #41822 (project octave):

In order to list available terminals, you need to run 'set terminal' from 
inside a gnuplot session:

address@hidden:~$ cd /usr/local/octave/3.8.0/bin/
address@hidden:bin$ ./gnuplot

You can see that the only "on-screen" terminal seems to be qt (no x11, no wxt,
no aqua). In octave 'setenv ("GNUTERM", "qt")' works fine for me.

In octave, "gnuplot_binary" returns "gnuplot", thus the first gnuplot binary
in the path is run. I had to remove the other places where I have gnuplot
installed (/sw in my case) from my PATH in order to run the expected gnuplot

At least "gnuplot_binary" should point to the one shipped with the dmg
installer, and GNUTERM should be set to "qt" by default as it's the only
available terminal.
