[SciPy-user] Errors compiling matplotlib on intel Mac (with fix)

I have had errors complaining about uint and ushort being defined in  
both types.h and numpy/arrayobject.h.  I fixed this problem by  
commenting out the lines in arrayobject where these things were  
redefined -- matplotlib compiles fine then.  This hack is unnecessary  
on the PPC Mac (as well as other platforms, I imagine).

Will this hack give me trouble with other packages?  Do any of you  
have suggestions for a more permanent fix?
