I'm trying to build matplotlib-0.87.2 on Mac OS X 10.4.5 PowerPC, but
am having problems with building the gtk gui. I have pygtk-2.8.4
installed and pygtk-demo runs without issue. However when I try to
build matplotlib using "python setup.py build" it tells me that it
needs pygtk inorder to build the gtk gui. This is however installed,
and can be imported into python without error
[ram@...1062... ram]$ python
Python 2.3.5 (#1, Mar 20 2005, 20:38:20)
[GCC 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1809)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
looking at setup.py, it is checking for the existance of the gtk
module, not the pygtk module - hence the reason for the failure. What
else do I need to install to build matplotlib from source on Mac OS X?
