The Matplotlib.nib directory is missing in the 0.83.2 source tarball. It needs to be installed in <sys.prefix>/share/matplotlib for the CocoaAgg backend to work. I manually retrieved it from CVS and put it there, and it seems to work - except for the 'Save Figure'
button which doesn't seem to do anything yet.
