Yes I build on Ubuntu Feisty and use the standard shared libraries for
wxWidgets which come from Ubuntu's packages.

My understanding is 2.6 or higher is known to build. I use 126.96.36.199, so
named by the Ubuntu folks.
So you are building on Ubuntu? I just checked my Ubuntu system and it
uses gcc version 4.1.2 Mac OS X (4.4, "Tiger") has gcc 4.0.1 The
errors I see are caused by an over loaded function. Perhaps gcc 4.1.2
is smarter. Perhaps the new Mac OS X has a later gcc?
Yes I could get the new gcc but Kicad should build using Apple's
native development system,whatever Apple has pushed out via Software
But I had a gcc version 4.0.1 which I built about 2 years ago. And in
an attempt to help you, I compiled the kicad project with it, and it
also compiles the project without errors or warnings. So if it is your
compiler, it would have to be because it was patched. My gcc 4.0.1 is
pristine, I know this since I built it myself.
Instead of questioning your compiler, could there be a conflict with
header files on your system? Maybe you should be posting some
questions on the wxWidgets help forums. Also, check your -I include
paths. The makefile.gtk and libs.linux files are golden. They are
working well, could be a good reference.
