Still dynamic linking, set your path accordly to find wx-config you have compiled first, then make all from scratch :)

Thanks Marco, and everyone else who has assisted me here. I finally compiled a successful working copy. Now I can start to experiment.
Here were the steps I used to compile WX and Kicad mostly stuff Marco and Nick suggested and a little from the Compile.txt from Kicad. This version was built against the 10.5 SDK:


./configure --enable-unicode=yes --enable-shared=no --enable-monolithic --with-opengl --enable-universal_binary --with-mac
sudo make
sudo make install

Compiling Kicad
cd <kicadSource>
mkdir -p build/release
mkdir build/debug
cd build/release

sudo cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DwxWidgets_USE_DEBUG=ON -DwxWidgets_USE_STATIC=ON

The following corrected some strange issues cmake was having.
edit the CMakeCashe.txt so this line is the same:

sudo make
sudo make install

It is not typical to use sudo in front of any of the above commands, except

make install.

FYI being root removes barriers to mistakes or bad scripts.
