OK, this is a bug in the windows installer - fixed for next release.
Yes, just create it.

Well, you would only notice it if 1) you haven't installed FontTools
before 2) you are using windows 3) you are trying to use on of the
FontTools dependent backends (Agg, GD) and 4) you are kind enough to
report the problem.

After you fix the FontTools.pth problem erase this file and it will be
automagically recreated by ttfquery.

Allright thanks. In Linux, i can compile the new matplotlib with gcc 3.3.
I notice the same problem with fontTools. This time i do have a
FontTools.pth in my source directory, but it isn't copied to
/whatever/python2.3/site-packages when i run
python setup.py install.

Now it doesn't find _backend_agg. Sorry to be bugging you with all
these minor annoyances.

Also i notice the 'afm' problem i reported earlier with the PS
backend hasn't been fixed. Did you receive my little fix?
