basedir

Hi,

setupext.py contains a basedir directory. Please add there
'linux2-alpha', 'linux2-hppa', 'linux2-mips', 'linux2-sparc',
'gnukfreebsd7', 'gnukfreebsd8'.

It would be nice, if matplotlib had an option to disable '/usr/local'.
This would be useful for distributions.

The Debian patch attached (does both).

Cheers,
Benjamin

I'm not sure I understand this. The patch seems to remove /usr/local from the list. Why do you want to do this? I am assuming the original idea was that if a user wants to build a version of a library and put it in /usr/local, then that is what mpl should use; if it is not found there, then use the distro version in /usr. This seems to me like the right strategy, so I am reluctant to apply your patch as-is.

Ok, attached a patch which adds support for other architectures.

The Debian/Ubuntu package should be build against the distro versions of
the libraries. The Debian/Ubuntu package should not link to packages
in /usr/local. Therefore we want to disable it for building the package.

It would be nice, if you can add an --disable-usr-local for distro
maintainers. With this option set, '/usr/local' will be stripped from
basedir.

Cheers,
Benjamin

Applied, thank you.

It would be nice, if you can add an --disable-usr-local for distro
maintainers. With this option set, '/usr/local' will be stripped from
basedir.

It looks like it would be very easy to add this as an option to be set in setup.cfg; is this adequate?

I don't know how to do it easily via a command-line option because those options are processed by distutils.core.setup(), so as far as I can see, they are not directly available to setup.py or setupext.py, short of adding our own layer of command-line processing.

Yes, that's equivalent.

I don't know how to do it easily via a command-line option because those
options are processed by distutils.core.setup(), so as far as I can see,
they are not directly available to setup.py or setupext.py, short of
adding our own layer of command-line processing.

Implement what you like more.
