MathGL is a library for drawing graphs/plots and mathematical formulas (and more)

Peter Kristensen New formula: mathgl a36169b

Coincidentally it seems I wrote a mathgl formula at the same time you did (#11399).

I wasn't able to get yours to work on Lion. During configure I get

checking png.h usability... no
checking png.h presence... no
checking for png.h... no
Please install png headers
==> make install
make install 
make: Nothing to be done for `install'.
==> Finishing up
ln -s ../../Cellar/mathgl/1.11.2 mathgl
==> Summary
/usr/local/Cellar/mathgl/1.11.2: 6 files, 96K, built in 5 seconds

I believe this is resolved via the ENV.x11 call (check out my pull request). I also had to play around with libz, since the new libpng included in Lion doesn't work with 1.11.2 without patching.

Does mine work for you?
