make.osx pull request

Here is a pull request proposing some changes to make.osx:
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/17 . I have never used
make.osx myself. Could someone familiar with its use please have a
look and decide whether the changes should be accepted?

Thanks,
Darren

Hi,

I'm not a matplotlib developer, but a user. I can certainly confirm that the libpng link needs to be changed. I discovered that about a month ago. That line in my modified version make.osx reads:

         ${PYTHON} -c 'import urllib; urllib.urlretrieve("http://sourceforge.net/projects/libpng/files/libpng12/older-releases/${PNGVERSION}/libpng-${PNGVERSION}.tar.gz/download", "libpng-${PNGVERSION}.tar.gz")' &&\

You might want to also fix the typo in:

ARCH_FLAGS="-arch i386-arch x86_64"

and then uncoment the lines that used ARCH_FLAGS, but were presumably commented out because of the typo and lines with "-arch i386 -arch x86_64"
added.

Cheers,

Jim
