matplotlib with X11

Does anyone know how to set up matplotlib (right now i'm using
py27-matplotlib) such that it uses X11 to draw the windows so they can be
viewed from a remote SSH session?  I've tried changing the backend in
~/.matplotlib/matplotlibrc from 'MacOSX' to 'Qt4Agg' (still renders on
local machine only), 'GTKAgg' (gives 'ImportError: No module named
_backend_gdk'), and several others, with no success.
