OK, Fernando told me that matplotlib builds fine with latest numpy on his
box so Ienquired a bit more. The problem is that the build of matplotlib
tries to include a header file that is generated automatically during the
build of numpy (__multiarray_api.h). If you install numpy using "python
setup.py install", this header file is inlcuded in the install. However I
used "python setupegg.py develop" to install numpy. As a result the
header file does not get put in the include directory. I guess this is
thus a bug in the setupegg.py of numpy, but my knowledge of setuptools is
way to low to be able to fix that.
