I don't think this file is ever explicitly made for you.  You can 
download a sample from his website, 
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/.matplotlibrc.  Download this and put 
it in your home dir.

For some strange reason I had to comment out all the lines that specify 
a color because they would cause errors.  I changed TKAgg to WXAgg after 
I installed wxPython for 10.3, and I changed Numeric to numarray, since 
numarray doesn't have the dependency that Numeric does, hence it is a 
little easier install.

Good Luck,
