As thge summary states.

I am also having trouble using the gtk backend with matplotlib under Gentoo. The ebuild fails to detect the installed gtk+ module. Can anyone solve this?
Comment 2 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-12-12 12:32:18 UTC
I tried to unbundle it using the fedora patches (see ebuild) but some test fail. Probably this can be fixed. agg-2.5 doesn't seem to be too different fromt the bundled version though.
Comment 3 Benda Xu gentoo-dev 2017-07-09 03:00:51 UTC
The diff between agg-2.5 and bundled agg and is huge, lots of them in include/ are code additions.  It is not a copy but a de facto fork.

I don't think we could unbundle agg from matplotlib with a simple patch, unless upstream intends to.
