I'm making notes on it now. The only thing that the installation
really stumbled over was some includes-- the Python installation left
me with a '/usr/people/mrf/python24/include' directory, which at the
matplotlib installation had 'python' and 'python2.4' subdirectories--
numarray put its includes into the 'python2.4' subdirectory, while
Numeric put its includes into the 'python' subdirectory. The
matplotlib installer found the numarray includes but not the Numeric
includes-- copying the Numeric includes into the 'python2.4'
subdirectory got the ball rolling again.
