I've used wx2.8.6 and i've compiled it myself, i've done also an Apple Package that installs 
itself under /Library/Framework.

The patches are for the 2007-07-02 but are only for a better manage of the Apple 
Bundles, (Path where to search libraries etc etc).
Both the pre-compiled packages (wxWindows Universal + Kicad universal) weights 64MB.
I've tested on PPC and on i386.

obliusly are #ifdef __WXMAC__ as they are "cosmetic" patches so should not break 
I've just ended hacking a bit so let me package the patches too.

Let me know ! :)
