Debian hasn't a more recent wxWidgets version other than 3.0.4 (source
package wxwidgets3.0 [1]). wxWidgets 3.2.0 would be the next stable
release, but no release date is planed nor announced. Today version
3.1.2 was released [2]. It's "just" a development release.

So any GTK3+ thingy need to be done on the current stable version of
3.0.4 in Debian.

Phoenix (aka wxpython4.0 [3]) is available in Unstable and Testing for
some months in Debian. The package python3-wxgtk4.0 is currently build
depending on libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-0v5 from src:wxWidgets3.0 version 3.0.4.
So no depending on some wxwidgets devel version.
