Installing MatPlotLib on Snow Leopard

Good morning list,

I have been trying to install the latest matplotlib on Snow Leopard
with the latest X-Code for a few days. I have tried the installer
packages (wrong versions) and the source (build errors) and neither
worked. I finally got it installed correctly by using MacPorts. I
wrote up what I did in case anyone else is having issues installing on
Snow Leopard [1].
