There are `python-matplotlib` and `python-numpy` packages in the Debian/Ubuntu repos.

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev libfreetype6-dev libpng-dev python-virtualenv

Then, you can create a virtualenv, and the installers for Numpy and Matplotlib will work: 

$ virtualenv env
$ cd env
$ source bin/activate
(env)$ pip install numpy matplotlib
