agg doesn't ship one because it's broken. it was .so.2 in 2.2, 2.3 and
it in 2.4. WITH incompatible API/ABI changes. And that part is
unsupprted by upstream anyway so he doesn't bother to fix it
(Already discussed with him).

Which agg version does matplotlib need? If 2.4, I can update agg (and
update OOo to build with the new API). If 2.3, it's already there, any
matplotlib still can use the system-agg library (and link statically...)
