They have been removed from the main package. If you really want to use them,
they are in the sandbox. You can edit Lib/sandbox/setup.py to enable building
them. They can be then accessed as scipy.sandbox.gplt, scipy.sandbox.xplt. They
are not supported anymore. gplt, at least, hasn't been ported to numpy at all.
The general recommendation is to use matplotlib instead.

Each should work alone. Except that gnuplot itself must be installed for gplt.
