Tim: I haven't looked into the nessus-core patch for gdcahrt, but if it is
a general solution to the autotools (i.e. use system gdchart if available, own else),
I suggest we add it to SVN before doing the 1.0.2 release.

Lets hurry up with these packaging issues. I expect some maintainer
to have some time over christmas days and if we prepare everything for
them, they could finally get packages in place.
