xterm has a Tektronix emulation mode.  Try starting gnuplot and typing
"set term vttek", then plotting a simple graph.  This is considerably
better than "dumb".

You might find you have to swap between the VT102 and Tektronix
windows manually from the menus.  You could bind keys to these like
this in ~/.Xresources :

XTerm*VT100.Translations:	#override \
			Ctrl<Key>F11:set-terminal-type(tek) \n\
XTerm*Tek4014.Translations:	#override \
			Ctrl<Key>F11:set-terminal-type(tek) \n\
