Have you tried using the 10.4 fat binaries for OSX that we provide for
matplotlib? Don't be deceived by the 10.4, since they are built
targeting 10.3.9. They already have freetype and libpng statically
compiled in. Try downloading the egg and just unzipping it. I don't
*think* the 2.4.1 vs. 2.4.3 should be an issue, but its worth a shot.
