Hi folks, I need some help to build my own port of these two packages. I 
want to update them to their latest version (1.3.1 and 1.8.0 
respectively) and I was using as basis the original Portfile file, we 
all know that just a few tweaks are necessary to achieve this goal.

I only changed the version and the chekcsum in the Portfile, but it's 
not enough.....can you help me out ? My intention in to launch the 
following commands from shell :

for Numpy :

/sudo port -v install/

for Matplotlib :

/sudo port -v install +tkinter/

and then find in the installed port list something similar :

py27-matplotlib @1.3.1_0+tkinter (active)
py27-numpy @1.8.0_1 (active)

please help me....thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
