font problem on Mac OS X with GUI

I have just installed the latest CVS version of matplotlib. The EPS/PS backend works
well with latex commands and also the png backend, but the GUI does not work anymore.
When I ran any of the examples in the examples directory I get the message

** ( WARNING **: Cannot open font file for font Verdana 10

** ( WARNING **: Cannot open fallback font, nothing to do

and python terminates. I have set the TTFPATH environment variable and I have
added the correct font path in which didn't help.
After severe problems with the gtk and pygtk installation via fink I decided to do a manual
installation by hand and everything compiled without any problems.

Thanks in advance for any help
