Can I add something to

    > /usr/local/bin/python setup.py build

    > and

    > /usr/local/bin/python setup.py install ?

You have a few choices:

  * don't enable the GTK backend for your matplotlib install in
    /usr/local/bin/python -- edit setup.py and set BUILD_GTK=0

  * install pygtk and everything else you want in the
    /usr/local/bin/python before installing mpl there

  * update your PYTHONPATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH so both can see the
    same pygtk install. This will only work if both pythons have the
    same major version number, eg both are 2.3 or both are 2.4.

  * use a subject heading when posting
