Unluckily, as I said, the only amd64 machine I could find is at work, so 
I can't do much testing till Monday.

I'm puzzled because QAT tells me it can't find -lwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8, but 
the file should be there. Could you please check if you have such a 
library under /usr/local/lib? I can't see how the port could find it 
sometimes and fail some others...

My port looks like doing it's best to find it, but sometimes it appears 
not to be there. Tinderboxes use packages for dependencies, maybe some 
problem with wxgtk2.8 pkg?

The test machine I build is a very clean one, a clean install with just 
ntpd and xorg running, then I installed wxgtk and traindirector. I'll 
try those flags, but I really can't see how they can affect it.

I'm also just throwing ideas, because I really can't get to this error...
