I downlaoded matplotlib-0.87.3.tar.gz from sourceforge and am attempting to compile/install it on a RedHat linux installation source.  When I run setup I get the following error.
 
$: python setup.py build
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 63, in ?
    from setupext import build_agg, build_gtkagg, build_tkagg, build_wxagg,\
  File "setupext.py", line 118, in ?
    win32_compiler = get_win32_compiler()
  File "setupext.py", line 115, in get_win32_compiler
    if 'mingw32' in v:
TypeError: 'in <string>' requires character as left operand
 
I'm runing python 2.2.3.  libpng, zlib, freetype, and Numeric are all installed.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
