hi Samuel

This looks suspiciously like an issue with a partial or incomplete local 
installation in /usr/local/bin in addition to the packages.  Look in 
/usr/local and remove all traces of pgplot, ifeffit and so on.  make sure 
you look in all subdirectories since the ifeffit perl wrappers go into 

once oyu have removed all local installation, try uninstalling and 
reinstalling horae, pgplot and ifeffit.

Let me know if the problems persist.
