bug: 0.99.1.1 setup.py needs optional package wx or it fails

Hi,

on a fresh CentOS5.3 with SciPy installed from repository
http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/ashigabou/ and additional
packages
  freetype-devel-2.*
        libpng-devel-1.*
        pygtk2-devel
        gtk2-devel
the matplotlib-setup script "setup.py" fails with error:

...
              wxPython: no
                        * wxPython not found
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 146, in ?
    import wx
ImportError: No module named wx

This does _not_ happen if I use the 0.99.0 archive (on the _same_ machine).

It seems as if the setup.py 0.99.1.1 only runs if the optional package
wx is installed.

Greetings
Jens

It sounds to me like this is caused by a glitch in the release process, in which a version of setup.cfg was included accidentally. If you have such a file, try deleting it.
