configure doesn't like debian's wx-config 2.8 renaming

Description

Hi,

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'

this is related to debian bug # 526200: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=526200

thanks, Hamish

configure[.in] updated in devbr6 in r36942.

keeping report open until it's ported to relbr6 and trunk. (my system isn't set up for that today)
