Am I wrong, or does matploib not build with current numpy svn?
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.
It's not a setuptools issue at all. "build_ext --inplace" just doesn't install header files.
