You may want to look at matplotlib -
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net.  You can embed it in a number of
GUIs (Wx, GTK and Tk) or use it simply for image generation.  Tk is in
CVS and will be released next week.

  DG> Cross platform (linux and windows) and can build into binary
  DG> form, or easy to install form on linux and windows.

All releases have windows installers.  Easy build on linux (python
setup.py install)

  DG> Hopefully still maintained (unlike biggles)

Very actively, by yours truly :-)

  DG> Easy to use (like scipy.gplt)

You may want to check out the tutorial, to see if it looks easy for
you - http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/tutorial.html

I use matplotlib in applications that run on windows and linux.  I
haven't tried to package it up into a single all inclusive installer,
eg, py2exe or McMillan, however, so I can't give you any information
there.
