make.osx: should it set --prefix=$PREFIX ?

While in the middle of overhauling make.osx, I think it makes sense to
go ahead and fix the ARCH_FLAGS variable, and then use it throughout in
place of the hardwired ARCH_FLAGS. That will make it easier to use the
makefile on a range of OS X and Xcode versions. It is also simply a
cleaner design.

I think I fixed this - my commit is now part of

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/17

Newer versions of the libraries can also be used, although this is not
critical. v1.0.x still needs the 1.2 series of libpng, but master can
now handle

ZLIBVERSION=1.2.5
PNGVERSION=1.5.1
FREETYPEVERSION=2.4.4

I think we should keep the changes to v1.0.x minimal - in master it
makes sense to upgrade to the newest versions. I'll make a separate pull
request for master.
