Also, please note, this is a test package, and is known to have issues 
eg the unit tests don't pass (or even build) for instance. And it 
doesn't yet build on the CI tool. You probably shouldn't be building 
other things with this package yet, if you have the choice - please use 
the older wxWidgets-3.0 package. I have a commercial product that uses 
that package so I know it is robust and reliable.
