Yes, recent events in wx space have done little to help that,
though I hope we are well past the worst of that now.

At least one of them I know was contentious, and though I didn't
look into it very deeply myself at the time, Vadim's argument about
not making localised fixes in many places did seem reasonably sound
to me at the time.

Can we start with the simplest of them first and try to get consensus
on wx-dev to have them applied.  I'll be happy to actually get them
committed for you if you provide updated patches for current HEAD,
but I'm afraid you are going to have to 'run the gauntlet' in that
forum again first for all but the most obviously correct changes.

I'm not sure what you mean by this.  Aside from being slower than the
old build system, you should be able to pretty safely ignore most of
what bakefile has changed.  For autoconf builds you might need to
tweak a couple of the options you pass to wx-config, but that should
be about it. (and that is more related to the new multiple lib format
than bakefile per se)

Cool.  I can't promise an easy passage through wx-dev, but it would be
nice to close this fork so I'll do what I can to help.

cheers,
Ron
