Please port graphviz to PASE and include it in the standard IBM Open repo

Please port graphviz to PASE and include it in the standard IBM Open repo.

Being IBMi business oriented, having an open graph renderer like graphviz readily available, would be beneficial, given the graph structure representation of many problems.

Should be easily installable with a

"yum install graphviz"

like in other systems.

On the internet you can find some binaries for AIX, but it would be nice to have a package readily available in the PASE IBM Open repo, and therefore updatable using standard tools on the machine like yum.

    graphviz and dot language is a very useful to render graphs (from business sources, db2, relational data).

    It is a must IMHO to include it in the IBM yum repo.

    It is even suggested by IBM itself on AIX on this article
