That's not related to the old conflicts I removed, rather it's a cock-up
in debian/rules - DEBIAN_WX_DEFAULT_VERSION shouldn't be set, rather
than being set to 2.8.

I think it makes most sense to fix this in Debian with a new upload of
2.8 dropping wx-common from there, as we need to switch over wx-common
to being built by wxwidgets3.0 at some point, so let's just get that
done now.

You may still end up carrying some changes related to Unity (see the
differences between wxwidgets2.8 in Debian and Ubuntu).  Upstream
rejected these changes, so I'm reluctant to include them in Debian.
