When you install wxGTK-2.6.1, and then try to build samples, you will receive
error complaining about directory "../../build msw/makefile". This directory
is for the MS Visual Studio.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unmask the wxGTK-2.6.1 packet.
2. Run "emerge =wxGTK-2.6.1"
3. Go to /usr/share/doc/wxGTK-2.6.1/sample and issue the command "make -f
Makefile.in" or "make -f makefile.gcc"
The samples will not be compiled.
Samples should be compiled.
Some of the samples are only for Windows, so you'll have to build the ones that
work for your platform individually.
wxGTK is platform-independent package, so no matter where, samples should be
compiled fine. They might not run, but at the very least compiled. However, no
one samples is to be compiled!!
wxGTK is not platform-independent. It doesn't compile on Windows. The Windows
version of wxWidgets doesn't use GTK at all. See www.wxwidgets.org for details.
If you have a problem with the samples not compiling please take it up with
wxWidgets or provide a patch to ignore the Windows and Visual Studio source.
