Similarly for me, except since I don't use much of the wx image loading
support (only the png loading), it was easier just to use the built in code.

Some clarification here. AFAIK; Alex wrote support that uses the
prebuilt wx libraries, although you can use his code to build wx like
libs, and of course with more work build wx itself. I wrote the support
that parses the bakefiles and builds the wx libraries ala Boost style.
It's in that same thread that I mention it.

It's close to what I use:
I also use things like:
