Please run the following commands after cleaning the previous installs
and reinstalling the mpkg file::
python -c 'import matplotlib; print matplotlib.__file__'
python -c 'import matplotlib; print matplotlib.__version__'
python -c 'import pylab'
The ls is important because sometimes a person has a directory named
'matplotlib' in their local path, and this is getting picked rather
than the installed matplotlib which contains the pylab module.
