I forwarded the original message on to matplotlib-devel. It would be
helpful if when replying to this message or any in this thread if we
CC the matplotlib-devel mailing list. I'm the list moderator so I can

I spent several hours yesterday trying to get matplotlib for Sage to

another test machine (bsd.math) the workaround from my laptop doesn't

Just to add (which I've also CC'ed to John), mathplotlib (at least the
version in Sage), is not respecting CXX properly. I specified CC as the Sun
C compiler, and CXX as the Sun C++ compiler. The code then tries to build a
C++ file (src/ft2font.cpp) with the Sun C compiler, which fails.

I've not looked at this in detail, so it could be a Sage-specific issue.
