Hi,

As in my other mail I am having trouble building from source.

Previously I used the mac .egg to get around this, but the

matplotlib-0.98.5-py2.5-macosx-10.3.egg for 0.98.5 doesn't appear to

work.

I install with -N as I found recommended elsewhere on the list, since

otherwise it tries to build from source which fails as in the other

mail.

After installing the egg

easy_install -N matplotlib-0.98.5-py2.5-macosx-10.3.egg

I get the following error about missing png library - is there a

dependency I need to install?

In [2]: import pylab
