anyone successfully made a debian stable (Sarge) backport?

I'm trying to be a good kid and not just install the Matplotlib
package in the Sid (unstable) tree on my Sarge (stable) laptop.

I got some error messages when trying to build a 'backport' to
Debian Sarge (stable) from the source package.

Anyone done this? Please advise.
