tkagg problem: no module named _tkagg

matplotlib has multiple "backends", eg for the different GUI toolkits
it works with. It looks like your particular darwin ports version
wasn't compiled with support for the tkagg backend, although this
appears to be the default for you installation.

I suggest not using darwin ports and using the pythonmac or macenthon
extensions instead.
