I'd recommend building MPL from source too, as every MPL release makes
leaps and bounds and the packages are likely a bit stale. But most
package managers allow you to force installs without checking
dependencies, as in "I know what I'm doing, just install it".
With apt-get I believe you'd have to download the .deb package and do
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends matplotlib<whatever>.deb
