I tried installing the two Mac OS X packages I found here. The .dmg file seems to have installed somewhere other than my EPD python path - doesn't seem to be in the Apple supplied Framework location either, so I'm sort of stumped on that one. The egg I tried to install with EPD's easy_install, and got the result below.
On a positive note, I seem to have been able to successfully compile matplotlib on RHEL (my deployment platform), so if I can get Mac (my development platform) figured out, I'll be golden!

Have you tried the instructions in release/osx/README? It seems that on
OS X it is easy to accidentally install a combination of libraries that
will cause build problems with matplotlib:
Also, it seems that John has uploaded a new release candidate at
so you could try and see if it works for you. Please note that it's a
release candidate, not a stable release.
