on a fresh CentOS5.3 with SciPy installed from repository
http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/ashigabou/ and additional
the matplotlib-setup script "setup.py" fails with error:
* wxPython not found
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 146, in ?
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.
