After I read a bit more about what wxPython really is, I realized that
wxPython and wxgtk should be at the same version. In the spirit of open
source, I attempted this myself.
I installed wxgtk 2.8 from ports, then fetched the wxPython 2.8 source and
attempted to port it following the example of the wxPython 2.6 makefile,
but I got compillation errors early in the process in some gtk code. This
made me think that perhaps the wxPython source I fetched might not be
compatible with the wxgtk source I got from the ports system. I believe
these versions are under development, so I suppose they change frequently
and it may be difficult to get them to match up. Or maybe I really don't
know what I'm doing. I've never attempted to port anything as complex as
a toolkit before.
