I have been able to get pygtk installed on OSX by following these instructions, and it works fine: http://kedeligdata.blogspot.com/2011/03/building-pygtk-for-mac.html
I would really like to get GTK working on OSX since I have done some app development using GTK and Glade, and I can get GTK and Glade working without problems on both Windows and Linux machines. OSX is the thorn in my side at the moment.
FYI: In make.osx, the path for the libpng install is no longer any good, the correct full path should be http://sourceforge.net/projects/libpng/files/libpng12/1.2.44/libpng-1.2.44.tar.gz/download The linpng folks seem to have relocated their installation files on the sourceforge server.
When altering the paths for GTK, what modifications are required? How can I help the matplotlib install find the GTK files?
