I'm having some problems compiling matplotlib 0.7.1 on solaris 8. I believe I have all the prerequisites there. If I try to compile with setup.py as it is originally, immediately it complains with "sh: pkg-config: not found", and finally dies after working a while. If I change "BUILD_GTKAGG = 0" it compiles with some complaints like
/usr/local/pkg/python/include/python2.3/pyconfig.h:856:1: warning: "_XOPEN_SOURCE" redefined
<command line>:1:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition
But seems to work.
When I try to import it I get:
Python 2.3 (#1, Sep 12 2003, 16:47:52)
[GCC 3.0.3] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import pylab

I'm not sure how to proceed from here. I also am not a python programmer, just a system administrator trying to get this installed. Any help or fingers pointing me in a direction are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
