wxGTK-2.4.2 was the first version that tried to work with gtk2, but it was considered experimental and likely not to work properly. I didn't risk it myself.

Do you have some compelling reason for using 2.4.2? If so, I suggest you use gtk1.2 (on recent distros the devel files for this are usually not installed by default, but they are still available: for example on Fedora core 3 I needed gtk+-devel-1.2.10-33.i386.rpm & glib-devel-1.2.10-15.i386.rpm).

Otherwise upgrade to 2.6.?, with which gtk2 will work.
