When using the latest matplotlib from svn and numpy version 0.9.6 I get:

$ ./
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 6, in ?
    from pylab import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/", line 1, in ?
    from matplotlib.pylab import *

  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/numerix/fft/", line 11, in ?
    from numpy.dft.old import *
ImportError: No module named old

Does mpl only work with specific versions of numpy?
Should mpl check for a required version and report an error if its not there?
