If I do a locate on, I see it in /usr/local/lib/compat. I see that the
one in /usr/lib is  I don't know anything about either of these. That's
why it is saying to use the -rpath option, to add /usr/local/lib/compat to your
ld search path.

You're probably pushing the envelope here, working with multimedia controls. You
might try asking on the wxWidgets mailing list for more specific wxWidgets help.
