[Freewx-maint] Bug#786986: Wxwidgets webview link flags problem

I've just uploaded with an updated wx-config webview patch so that when
libwxgtk-webview3.0-dev isn't installed, wx-config should give the same
answers as if webview had been disabled when the wxwidgets3.0 package
was built.

This is incorrect actually - if you build wx without webview, then what
you wrote above is exactly what "wx-config --libs webview" reports.

It looks like any unknown library name listed after --libs just gets a
boilerplate response:

$ wx-config --libs anything
-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -pthread   -lwx_gtk2u_anything-3.0 -lwx_baseu-3.0
