Thanks for the quick response.

Actually, the compile command includes dotneato-config --libs which does
point to the right directory for the graphviz libraries on my machine:

Prompt> dotneato-config --libs
-L /usr/local/lib/graphviz -ldotneato

What file is associated with -ldotneato that I should look for?

Thanks again,
