numpy1.0rc and matplotlib-0.87.5


I can't seem to get matplotlib-0.87.5 to work with numpy1.0rc:

Python 2.4.3 (#1, Sep 21 2006, 13:06:42)
[GCC 4.1.1 (Gentoo 4.1.1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

from pylab import *

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/", line 1, in ?
    from matplotlib.pylab import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/", line 196, in ?
    import cm
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/", line 5, in ?
    import colors
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/", line 33, in ?
    from numerix import array, arange, take, put, Float, Int, where, \
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/numerix/", line
74, in ?
    Matrix = matrix
NameError: name 'matrix' is not defined

This is on an AMD64 platform. I tried removing the build directories of both
packages, and reinstalling, but that didn't work.

Am I missing something?
