Updated graphviz packages fix security vulnerability :

Format string vulnerability in the yyerror function in lib/cgraph/scan.l in Graphviz allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via format string specifiers in unknown vector, which are not properly handled in an error string (CVE-2014-9157).
