Now I understand your question.  Yes, indeed it seems that Bitcoin can't 
work with WxWidget 2.8 (which is what I tried so far), but requires 
WxWidget 2.9 not yet available in Debian.

WxWidget is huge. I have my hands full with other projects - but perhaps 
an interesting challenge for the WxWidgets team: Upstream seems to 
encourage relying on it, stating on the front page of the project that 
"in spite of being called a development release, we believe that 2.9.1 
can be used in production environment".

Perhaps package it but release only for experimental for now?

Cc'ing the WxWidgets team.

Kind regards,

  - Jonas
