Problems installing Matplotlib under SUSE SLES 11 SP1

Having issues with installing the matplotlib package under Linux SUSE SLES 11
SP1 (s390):

The original distribution gcc throws an error:
"src/ft2font.h:14:22: error: ft2build.h: No such file or directory"

when adding the file ft2build.h the linkage process stops at this error:
G++ cannot find -lfreetype

When trying to manually install the latest Freetype2 package, I get an error
when using the package build commands, both at the "make" and "jam"



error at make command:
zbra:/opt/python/freetype2/freetype-2.4.6 # make builds/unix/ No such file or directory builds/unix/ No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `builds/unix/'. Stop.

error at jam command
zbra:/opt/python/freetype2/freetype-2.4.6 # jam install
don't know how to make install
...found 1 target(s)...
...can't find 1 target(s)...

Thanks in advance for any hints,
