I am running into a problem both with the source available from sourceforge and with the package distributed by fink (version 0.83.1 of matplotlib).
The compile fails with this command:
g++-3.3 -L/sw/lib -bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup -L/sw/lib build/temp.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/src/_na_transforms.o build/temp.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/src/mplutils.o build/temp.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/CXX/cxx_extensions.o build/temp.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/CXX/cxxsupport.o build/temp.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/CXX/IndirectPythonInterface.o build/temp.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/CXX/cxxextensions.o -L/sw/lib/freetype219/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib -L/sw/lib -L/sw/lib -lstdc++ -lm -o build/lib.darwin-8.2.0-Power_Macintosh-2.4/matplotlib/_na_transforms.so

I had matplotlib running just fine until I upgraded the operating system and then did a fateful 'fink update-all'. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have tried rebuilding the freetype library.
I don't see older versions of matplotlib on the web site, and do not know how to get them from fink (if that is possible), but I wonder if moving back a version might help me. Where can I find the source code for non up-to-date versions of matplotlib, if it is available? I just don't know what else to try, and I know that it used to work.
Thanks for any help,
