I'd like to know how many people out there are using monolithic builds of wxWidgets.
This is to convince wx developers to apply the following patch:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.ph ... tid=309863

which adds to wx-based application support to be built against monolithic builds of wxWidgets.

you should try it - it cuts linkage time down by 80% (at least when using the gcc tortoise linker )

Yeah I have tried it but then you have to distribute the dll with your app (yuck). :P

Well, not really. Shared for Debug builds (fast), not shared for Release builds (slow).
Don't say you're held back by using makefiles, surely you must be using CodeBlocks :shock:
