I have to agree, this proactive approach to getting Kicad working with the new wx2.9 is commendable. It is wishful thinking that the problem will be addressed by the library developers first, but regardless Kicad is not building now on the latest release and a Kicad workaround on this end is the best solution. Especially when two developers are committed to it. 

Thanks Jean-Paul and Marco, for the hard work you are putting into the OSX solutions.
