They ship with the matplotlib src distribution. You may have a
partial install, which may be preventing a full instal since
matplotlib checks for their existence before overriding an existing

Get a copy of the matplotlib src distribution, and

  > sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pytz
  > sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dateutil

and then reinstall matplotlib to see if you get a proper install.
