Hi there.

I've been trying to create a wxPerl[1] port lately. I've managed to prepare 
Alien::wxWidgets port[2] (dependency) that seems to be fine (though it might 
use some tuning, ie. respecting WITH_UNICODE flag as at this moment use of  
unicode is mandatory).

I'm stuck at actual compilation. While manual compilation[3] (perl 
Makefile.PL; make; make install) throws lots of "deprecated conversion from 
string constant to 'char*'" warnings Wx seems to work properly. But compiling 
it using port system [4] is a no go. Furthermore when I run build command  
(output of make -n do-build) manually Wx compiles as well.

Anyone got a idea why is it so?
