Getting matplotlib working on Ubuntu 6.06

Dear Reader,

This process is generally very simple, build from source work out which package causes it to barf and install it – the do this again…

If you get random errors about things in the sparse directory, i.e.
ImportError: cannot import name cscmux
try cleaning out site-packages/scipy and reinstalling – this gets rid of crud from previous installs…
