Yep, that fixed it.  According to the graphviz website, it's available for both OSX and Windows.

Installed it on OSX, and voila, the graphs appear.  Haven't tried Windows (yet).

I wonder if it would be a reasonable workaround in the meantime, to include a png image in
the gem that
says (in English for now): "To see generated graphics, you'll need to install the graphviz

Then, instead of deltacloud-core doing the "Internal Server Error" thing when it doesn't find
it could instead just read that image file and output it.
