Follow-up Comment #10, bug #35391 (project octave):

If gnuplot was not found when Octave was compiled, the gnuplot_binary will be
an empty string by default, so you're right, the toolkit will not work. The
fix for this bug means the gnuplot toolkit will not be available in that case.
Which is exactly what we want.

If the user wants to tell Octave where to find gnuplot later, they can do
something like

gnuplot_binary ("/path/to/my/gnuplot");
register_graphics_toolkit ("gnuplot");

in an octaverc startup file and everything will work as expected from that
point on. I just tested a build with no toolkits and no gnuplot and confirmed
that this works.
