[Pythonmac-SIG] py2app and matplotlib

Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting py2app to work with matplotlib. There is a 
matplotlib recipe, but it's out of date, and some things have changed.

The first error I got was not being able to find pytz.zoneinfo. As 
that's in a different place now, I commented it out of the matplotlib.py 

However, now I'm getting an error that I don't even know how to begin to 


   File "build/bdist.macosx-10.3-fat/egg/macholib/MachO.py", line 106, 
in load_header
     hdr = MachOHeader(self, fh, offset, size, magic, hdr, endian)
   File "build/bdist.macosx-10.3-fat/egg/macholib/MachO.py", line 146, 
in __init__
   File "build/bdist.macosx-10.3-fat/egg/macholib/MachO.py", line 178, 
in load
     raise ValueError("Unknown load command: %d" % (cmd_load.cmd,))
ValueError: Unknown load command: 27

Enclosed is about the simplest matplotlib script, and a test_setup 
script to py2app it -- anyone have any ideas?
