matplotlib FC3 install problems (was Re: matplotlib Redhat 9.0 install problems)

First, let me tell you how jaw-droppingly-cool I think matplotlib is. I think I've used every plotting package for Python out there, and matplotlib is the best of them all. These are truly "publication quality" graphics. Congratulations on a wonderful package.

Now, being that cool, I want to install them everywhere. I found a binary version for the mac (although I would prefer to install from source...), but I'm having a hard time building on Fedora Core 3. The RH9 thread and the patch recommended therein was helpful, but I'm still getting a bug:

I just re-tried this with the CVS version (I note you've fixed the RH9 bug therein), but this bug still occurs. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
