[Matplotlib-users] Missing dll in windows build 0.87.4

Try this. If you are still getting an error, please post it. I am
moving this to the devel list.

        if sys.version[:3] > '2.3':
            if libraries:
                pass #libraries.append('msvcr71')
                libraries = [] #['msvcr71']

The other option is to bundle that dll with matplotlib. I have seen
other python modules doing this.

I tried commenting out that very block, but then numpy will not build
-- it does not see the mingw32 compiler without those lines, it
appears. I used the --compiler switch on the build, but to no avail.

I'm a bit stuck here, as matplotlib does not build, and the binary
does not seem to work. I'm trying to put together a package that
contains numpy, matplotlib and scipy to distribute to some of my
