This looks like a new bug that I am unaware of.  I have never seen a
problem in the place that the trap file is pointing to.  I would be
interested in understanding better what lead to this problem.  If it
crops up again, take notes on what you just did and let me know.

Whenever you see one of these error messages complaining about an
undefined symbol that begins with "PL" the problem is always with
PGPLOT.  This could get back to your problem with having
ifeffit+friends installed in different places.  It would seem that
either you removed pgplot entirely or pgplot is installed in the wrong
place for the current setup.

It may be as simple as reinstalling pgplot.  Or you may need to
rebuild ifeffit so that the ifeffit library is definately compiled
against pgplot in its current location.  Or both.

Good luck!
