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.
