If you install from source, two of the most common problems are:

* a missing or wrong fortran compiler. As of this writing g77 is still the default, but newer versions of gfortran now know how to build pgplot and no patching is needed anymore (except the keyword gfortran=1 to the install.miriad script).
* missing development packages. On linux your package manager should be queried for these. Unfortunately not each linux distribution (or version) will use the exact same name for this. A common example is the X11 development package. For example pgplot will need a file /usr/include/X11/Xos.h (it could also live somewhere else).
