Most likely issue is that these libraries are listed when linking the
core wx library, in which case not doing that should fix it.  A simpler
option may be to pass -Wl,--as-needed when linking - this tells the
linker to only actually link against libraries which contribute symbols,
which usually works, but fails in some unusual cases.  We should see
from the debdiffs what effects it has.

It could be there's actually some code which references these libraries
which goes into the core wx library - in that case, we'll probably need
to patch the upstream source so that code goes into the webview library.
