Thanks for your work on this. Is it possible to include the suggestion above about the error message - that in the case of the ‘incomplete build’ issue (which gave rise to this thread) the error message would include the suggestion to set GRDIR to “”
To the OP, I feel your pain. FWIW, I just ran into a problem caused by the intersection of GR, Plots, and PyPlot (GR issue 392). After hours of troubleshooting, I discovered that the most recent GR version, 0.57.3, was picking up multiple Qt libraries on my system. Restricting the version to 0.55.0 has resolved it for me. Maybe not directly related to the direct issue discussed here, but it speaks to the larger problems of the Julia packaging ecosystem. Hopefully it continues to improve.
