configure doesn't like debian's wx-config 2.8 renaming
|Reported by:||hamish||Owned by:|
for the official Debian package we need to specify which wx-config to use because 2.6 can be installed on the same system.
'--with-wxwidgets=/path/to/wx-config2.8' should work, but it doesn't because configure.in explicitly only accepts a binary called 'wx-config' on line ~ 1740:
if test "`basename $with_wxwidgets`" = "wx-config" ; then WX_CONFIG="$with_wxwidgets" fi
can we change it to be more like --with-python= ?
if test "$with_python" != "yes" ; then PY_CONFIG="$with_python" fi
the real wx-config binary on debian is hidden behind some symlinks but on a system with wx2.6 on it as well needs to be set to '--with-wxwidgets=/usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.8'
