you might need to install the libraries themselves if they are not in
/usr/local/lib or something like that. look at the library requirements for


Also try looking at your login profile and be sure that you have defined the
environmental variables that tells emboss where to find the library:

i'm using tcsh on mac os x

setenv PLPLOT_LIB "/usr/local/lib"

its different for other unix shells

it is also suggested to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable in
your login file.

one of these steps might help.

good luck
