Trying to compile wxWidgets is troublesome for me ](*,). Unless I made an edit to the default sources or I need a strange configuration, I see no point in actually compiling it so I just simply use the precompiled version of the pack also known as wxPack.

If you still want to compile it yourself take a look at this instruction: ... _Builder_5

Though it's long and tedious, you may find something that conflicts with your IDE / Compiler configuration.
