Perhaps you need to refresh your shared library cache -- run "ldconfig -R".

Is there a particular reason why you're purposely using a back-level version
of libm? is the version that is part of with 6.x.  If you don't
need a specific version, then use the -l option to link, like this:

g++ -o winmain winmain.o -lm `wx-config --libs gl,media,std,core,base`
