[SciPy-user] additional superpak problems

And yet more strangeness...the superpack matplotlib breaks the
ability to use pylab:
python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/tkagg.py", line 1, in ?
ImportError: Failure linking new module: /Library/Frameworks/
backends/_tkagg.so: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.
Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/
Reason: image not found
Reverting back to the matplotlib at http://www.macpython.org/packages/
py24-fat/index.html allows ipython -pylab to work.
I have no idea if mixing and matching parts of superpak with other
packages will cause me later problems.
I'm curious, Vincent, do you run matplotlib interactively with
ipython? Does that piece installed from the superpack work for you?
