Open Source C++ Charting Library for Linux/Solaris

As well as GNUplot-- there's a program called pov-ray.  Never used it-- 
but it appears to be pretty intense [scientific stuff].  On the simple 
side with pie charts-- I'd check out the PERL modules on CPAN.  I know 
at work we have a lot of charts generated on internal intra-net with 
some of these modules.  I haven't seen pie charts... but would be 
surprised if they didn't have something.  PERL isn't c++, but you could 
have a script that your c++ routine calls [or see if the PERL module is 
just a wrapper around some c/c++ library].
