[Freewx-maint] Bug#570610: wx-common: Does not support wxWidgets 2.8 in Lenny

Package: wx-common
Severity: important

Lenny provides wxWidgets packages for v2.6 and v2.8.  However wx-common only supports v2.6 
in Lenny.  The wxWidgets development installs (libwxgtk2.8-dev and libwxbase2.8-dev) can not 
be used on packages that use autotools without one of the files in wx-common; wxwin.m4.  
Ideally there would be a wx2.8-common that is dependent on libwxbase2.8-0 available in Lenny.  
A work around is to manually extract wxwin.m4 from the wxWidgets v2.8 source package and copy 
it to /usr/share/aclocal.

IMO, wxwin.m4 should be part of the "libwxbasevX.X-dev" packages but a wx2.8-common package 
for Lenny would suffice.
