wxWidgets: create a new port to hold common files

Reported by: mojca (Mojca Miklavec) Owned by: mojca (Mojca Miklavec)

Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: jyrkiwahlstedt
Port: wxWidgets-2.8 wxWidgets-3.0 wxWidgets_select


I'm attaching a patch that fetches the following files from the latest release:


and installs them straight to ${prefix}, avoiding the need for port select to handle those six files. I don't know what the last five are, but the first one:

  • certainly works with any wxWidgets version
  • it is often needed (some software packages need it for running autoconf if they don't ship a local copy)
  • causes problems with autoconf due to a bug in port select (#47755)

The step that is still missing is some cleanup of leftovers in preactivation step.

I would like to request some testing and feedback before committing the files.
