Error from ``python develop`` using trunk

I have no idea what the second line does either -- and I've always done
just fine without it :wink:

AFAIK, the second line does the same thing as the first one, and then
makes a matplotlib.egg-link file in your site-packages directory,
containing the directory in which your matplotlib sources live, so that
"import matplotlib" finds that directory without any explicit hacking of
the Python search path. If you already have such a file, or if you have
otherwise managed to put the source directory on the search path, the
first line should be enough.

   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/
Extras/lib/python/setuptools/command/", line 77, in
     sources = _build_ext.swig_sources(self, sources) or sources
TypeError: swig_sources() takes exactly 3 arguments (2 given)

Sounds like a setuptools problem. Perhaps updating setuptools
(easy_install -U setuptools) will help.
