matplotlib setup problem

Hello,
I have Python in my home directory installed and when I tried to install
matplotlib in the following way:
xyz@...3242...: ~/temp/matplotlib-1.0.0 $which python
~/programs/python/bin/python
xyz@...3242...: ~/temp/matplotlib-1.0.0 $python setup.py build
basedirlist is: ['/usr/local', '/usr']

···

============================================================================
BUILDING MATPLOTLIB
            matplotlib: 1.0.0
                python: 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Jan 28 2010, 14:19:59) [GCC
                        4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)]
              platform: linux2

REQUIRED DEPENDENCIES

the installation stopped at "REQUIRED DEPENDENCIES".

What did I wrong?

Thank you in advance.

Did it stop? Or did the build just hang there? Also, do you have the other build dependencies installed for matplotlib?
