I've never worked on AIX, but the steps there should be the same as
elsewhere -- mpl has been compiled on a number of UNIX boxes. Make
sure you have the dependencies on your system (zlib, libpng and
freetype with development headers). Add an entry in setupext.py in
the basedirs dictionary, where the key is your sys.platform and the
value is a list of paths in which matplotlib should search for
dependencies (eg /opt, /usr/local, whatever). You will probably have
the best luck trying to compile with gcc but this may not be an
option. If your compiler is C++ standards compliant, and the
matplotlib compile fails because of some noncompliant code, I'll treat
this as a bug and try and fix it. Unfortunately, I don't have access
to an AIX system which makes it a little slower to find and fix these
problems. Perhaps there is an AIX system on the sourceforge compile
farm -- anyone want to volunteer into looking into the compile farm
options :-) ?
Basically, I suggest you try following the instructions at
http://matplotlib.sf.net/installing.html and see how far you get, and
report the errors you get when tyring to compile as well as the
compiler you are using and other relevant information.
