[IPython-user] matplotlibrc and ipython -pylab

I have a .matplotlib directory where matplotlibrc has GTKAgg as a 
default backend, for my everyday use. But I am also developing an 
ipython-base framework for other users in my collaboration, with a 
custom python/ipython install which does not include pygtk. So I would 
like to be be able to tell ipython/pylab to look somewhere else for the 
correct matplotlibrc, or to not read it at all....
How can I do that?
ipython -pylab does a  lot before I can call rc in my modules, so I need 
something upstream from my code.

thanks in advance,
