matplotlib Mac binary that works with python.org python and older MacOS X?

In article <rowen-466E37.16580630062010@...1803...>,

I'm trying to find a matplotlib 0.99.3 binary installer that works with
the standard python.org Python (preferably 2.6) and hence works with Mac
OS X 10.4 or greater. (I distribute an application that needs to run on
a wide range of versions of Mac OS X).

The official binary I found refuses to install on my machine claiming it
wants system python 2.6 (I happen to be running 10.5 so that's no use to
me, and some users of my application are running 10.4).

I also tried the egg, but of course it fails -- presumably it's based on
the same build.

If a binary isn't available I"ll make my own, but I figured I'd check
first.

I made binaries (on Mac OS X 10.5) using my instructions:
<http://www.astro.washington.edu/users/rowen/BuildingMatplotlibForMac.htm

They are available from here, for now:
<http://www.astro.washington.edu/users/rowen/python/>

please test them. If they work then I hope the matplotlib folks will
consider serving them as official "for 3rd-party Python" binaries
(as opposed to the current ones they are serving, which are for Apple's
Python).

Thanks Russell, this looks great -- it seems to be working on my OS-X 10.5 PPC box.

+1 -- these really should be the official ones (nothing wring with serving up the 10.6 ones too, if they are well labeled)

I'm happy to upload them, how do you suggest they should all be named?
