Error building docs from the source

Hello,

The latest check-out gives an error while trying to build the documentation. Hitting “q” in pdb prompt resumes the execution and finishes the creation successfully.

I can’t reproduce this here. These sorts of CXX errors are usually
caused by distutils not rebuilding enough when things change. Can you
try removing the build directory, rebuilding matplotlib, and then
rebuilding the docs?

You are right. The error disappeared after re-building the matploblib.

Thanks for pointing out this.
