Install GNUPlot -> Need MacPorts

Install MacPorts -> Forever 1 minutes left =_=

UPDATE:

Install GNUPlot using MacPorts -> Needs Xcode command line tools (which doesn't come with the latest Xcode)

Don't plot graphs in LaTeX. It's not worth the hassle.

Get yourself Mathematica, and use it to export graphs to PDF. They're really good actually. Plus, it's extremely easy to make good graphs in Mathematica, in contrary to GNUPlot where you're stuck to elementary functions and simple data processing only.

Or instead of Mathematica you could of course use Maple or Matlab, whatever floats your boat. Though AFAIK Mathematica has the best graphics.
