wx-config issue on the current Cygwin build

tmacchant
Hello

I have noticed that the cygwin supports Wxwidgets both 2.8 and 3.0.
I have used Wxwidgets 3.0.2 on Cygwin instead of my own build one.

I have a trouble for wx-config.
The configure script of gnuplot see wx-config.
But wx-config of Wxwidgets 3.0 on the cygwin wx-config-3.0.

My workaround is :

$ ln -s wx-config-3.0 wx-config.

Is there any other ways?

Doing it exactly that way would mean you do this directly in /usr/bin,
i.e. you put your own files into a distribution-managed directory.
That's not exactly optimal.  It's better to keep such things in
directories that belong to the user, e.g.

        ln -s /usr/bin/wx-config-3.0 ~/bin/wx-config

The canonical tool for this job would be the 'alternatives' mechanism
(see /etc/alternatives/*), but for whatever reason cygwin doesn't use
that for this particular job.

Thanks for youradvance.  I am using cygwin as an administrator and would like to change it all users.

So
$ ln -s /usr/bin/wx-config-3.0 /usr/local/bin/wx-config                    
is appropriate, I suppose.
