I checked quickly, and wxGTK28 itself is 60 MB, and with dependencies
(pkg_info -S) it's 265 MB (netbsd 6, i386).  gnuplot currently is 3.7MB,
and 34 MB with dependencies (which is mostly pango and cairo).   So this
seems like a pretty big increase, roughly triple 

Do you know if wxGTK28 builds everywhere gnuplot builds?  It depends on
things like gstreamer, gst-plugins and MesaLib, and MesaLib has recently
been tricky on netbsd-5.

Is it just that the gnuplot people thing wxt is better than the basic
