I recently had to disable the use of xvfb in the octave testsuite, because it
was causing crashes at build time (related to the move to Qt 5) [1].

Hence I think that simply adding gnuplot-nox as a test dependency would be a
better option (also because it drags less additional dependencies); but I did
not verify that it is enough to fix test failures, so I may be missing something.
