I there someone on this list that can build matplotlib for the mac? I used
the matplotlib package in the superpack and also tried the one on macpython
to run the example below to read dates from a csv file but it didn't work.
Apparently because the pytz module is not available in the matplotlib
packages for the mac.

I tried compiling matplotlib myself but got the following error on build:

gcc: cannot specify -o with -c or -S and multiple compilations
