Try building wxWidgets using the build-wxmsw.bat script in
xtra/wx-build/. We have intentionally moved to dynamically linking
with wxWidgets recently, so you should see it linking with import
libraries (.lib files), which will require the corresponding DLLs.

I'll update the INSTALL file. Guess I forgot that (sorry).
