Of course... I'll try to be as detailed as I can be...
I'll start off by mentioning that I have created and uploaded and
archive with a snapshot of everything that I've got so far:
The env. I'm using is:
* VS9 (2008)
* Python 2.6 for amd 64 (compiled with VS9 by the python.org folks)
To compile Numpy I did this:
1. Extract Numpy 1.2
2. Start the Visual Studio 2008 Command prompt
3. Patch "numpy-1.2.0\numpy\core\src\umathmodule.c.src" according to the
4. invoke python setup.py build bdist_wininst
5. Install the resulting installer
6. Run numpy.test()... (You'll need a installed nose unit-test framework,
which is in the archive I've attached)
1. Extract matplotlib-0.98.3
2. I downloaded the win32_static package so I can see the "recomended"
static dependencies and compiled the dependencies as best I could,
altering the provided ".sln"/".csproj" files as best I could to compile
for x64 (none of them have pre-made x64 "builds")
What I compiled out of the win32 packages was:
libpng / zlib
3. I restructures the headers / .lib files in a manner similar to how they
the win32_static package, and placed it in a "win64" directory
4. Changed setupext.py to use "win64" instead of "win32_static"
5. Compiled with python setup.py build bdist_wininst, installed the
6. Ran a few tests...
I'm still "missing" on getting the wxPython headers/static libs compiled,
but I assume this is not a
"critical" part of getting MPL working, but rather required for completeness

Could you please describe your build environment? I am interested in what
compiler you used and what OS you are running.

Feel free to look at a screenshot:
Is MPL supported on Win x64? I someone working on this?
I would be happy to share my NumPy build and MPL dependencies + MPL build
