That would be the easiest solution (for me, anyway :-)

Yes - it also makes PPM packaging a little simpler - in that there's no need 
to create a post-install process that installs the (C library) pgplot.dll. 
But unfortunately I've not been able to build the pgplot C library at all - 
either statically or  dynamically. (The dll and import libraries I'm using 
were built by someone else.)

Thanks Jan, Craig.
