[Numpy-discussion] can't import pylab

I can't import pylab!! 

it's a problem with ft2font. I checked for the existence of the files it's looking for, the libfreetype.6.dylib, and  ft2font.so – they exist in the places they're supposed to. I don't really know what 'image not found' exactly means.

If anyone has any suggestions, I will be very grateful.

>>> import pylab
