Oops, I got confused by all the "Steve" posts this morning and
accidentally responded to Steve Chaplin trying to answer your
question. Here is the same post again:
Agg is already built into the matplotlib windows installer. No need
to build it yourself. If for some reason, however, you want or need
to build it yourself, download
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/win32_static.tar.gz, untar it in
your matplotlib src dir, and follow the instructions in the README in
the win32_static dir and in setupext.py.
As for building matplotlib + agg into a py2exe installer, yes this is
possible. See Matt Fischler's post on this list "How to freeze your
matplotlib apps using py2exe"
Hope this helps,
