It does appear like the version in Debian Unstable is too old:

$ wx-config --version

I'm going to file a bug report in Debian later today to get them to
upgrade to the latest version (2.6.2).

Debian takes care of the naming problem by using an /etc/alternatives

$ ls -l /usr/bin/wx-config
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 2005-11-16 14:35 /usr/bin/wx-config -> /etc/alternatives/wx-config

$ ls -l /etc/alternatives/wx-config
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 43 2005-11-16 14:35 /etc/alternatives/wx-config -> /usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.6

$ update-alternatives --display wx-config
wx-config - status is auto.
link currently points to /usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.6
/usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.6 - priority 268
Current `best' version is /usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.6.
