[SciPy-user] 64 bit on Mac?

It turns out... that is not the problem.  I still have the error I
reported earlier:
>>> from matplotlib import pyplot
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/
python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/pyplot.py", line 6, in <module>

    from matplotlib import ft2font

  Expected in: dynamic lookup

but apparently I DO have a 64 bit version of the FreeType library:

eta ~/Downloads/matplotlib-0.98.5.3$ file /Library/Frameworks/

packages/matplotlib/ft2font.so (for architecture x86_64):  Mach-O 64-

Any ideas?  This has been the sticking point for me for quite some
time.  A friend with a nearly identical setup was able to get this
working, but we haven't been able to figure out the difference in our
two installs.
