Calling 'main' from the Demo module should open several gnuplot windows 
showing some examples. If it does not, then this might be a difference of 
gnuplot between Mac and Linux. For PNG output use the Terminal.PNG module 
instead of Terminal.X11. In the latest version from darcs repository, 
there is also histogram support and a demo of it.

darcs get http://code.haskell.org/gnuplot/
