I think I've successfully build a binary matplotlib package for use with Apple's Python on OS-X 10.3.* In theory the only other thing it requires is Numeric, and I have a package for that too (courtesy of Bob Ippolito).
It's almost 5 MB, so I haven't included it here. I also don't have a web site to put it on at the moment, so:
A) if you send me a note, I'll send it to you
B) if you have a place to host it, please volunteer to do so.
I'd like people to test it out, all I know now is that it works on my system.
Once it's been better tested, perhaps we can get it put on the sourceforge download page.
