import error

I'm trying out version 0.54 ; it compiles fine, but on import I get the following

  File "./", line 9, in ?
     from matplotlib.matlab import *
   File "/home/rca/lib/python2.3/site-packages/matplotlib/", line 133, in ?
     from axes import Axes
   File "/home/rca/lib/python2.3/site-packages/matplotlib/", line 20, in ?
     from image import Image
   File "/home/rca/lib/python2.3/site-packages/matplotlib/", line 9, in ?
     import _image
ImportError: /home/rca/lib/ undefined symbol: deflate

I had no such problem with 0.53, which was linked against the same png libs.
Any ideas? Thanks,
