Should I be surprised that wxmsw 'make install' places the wx dll
in $prefix/lib instead of $prefix/bin ? For a contrasting example,
libxml2 puts its dll in bin, and import libraries in lib, so only
bin (and not lib) needs to be added to $PATH.

The "Subject:" header is a little outdated: I'm using the wx-2.8.6
tarball from ftp.wxwidgets.org .

Options to 'configure' are given here
and seem generally unremarkable. The only thing that looks a bit
weird to me is that I'm using the MinGW gcc toolchain in a Cygwin
shell, but I'm not yet specifying
which would seem to be a good practice, e.g. according to:
Ultimately I suppose I will specify build and host that way;
I haven't yet because it is known to work without specifying
them, and I want to get this build environment completely
stabilized before making any change.
