This looks like an X11 issue. Make sure you log in with ssh -X and
that you can launch an X11 app from the build machine in the build
environment. Sometimes you also need to set xhost. Eg if you are
building as root, make sure you can launch an xterm as root before
trying to install matplotlib.

Fwiw, bdist_rpm just worked fine for me on Ubuntu.
