I'll look into this. One solution might be to symlink the wx libs
into the Debugger bundle, but I hope that there is a cleaner solution.

The only downside of this that I can see is that the pgadmin3 binary gets
_really_ huge (about 200M or so) when statically linked against wx. My old
powerbook G4 takes a few minutes to even open that with gdb..

BTW, I've been working on an i386 binary of pgadmin3 that is statically linked.
If've managed to compile static version of libxml, libxslt, wxwidgets and
libpq, but configure fails for pgadmin3 because it doesn't know that it has
to pass "-lssl" when linking against that static libpq. AFAIK, libtool ususally
takes care of that, and provides dependency information for static libs.

Neither wxwidgest nor postgres seem to create *.la files for my static libs -
Does anyone know if they should - or how to deal with static linking without
