oh right, I missed the fact that SetMinSize didn't exist there.

It looks for me like the least painful solution for this is to just ignore 
that call for versions that don't provide it, along the lines of:
#if (wxMAJOR_VERSION >= 2) && (wxMINOR_VERSION >= 6) && (wxRELEASE_NUMBER >= 
    SetMinSize( s );
(not sure on that 2.6.0 version I don't know exactly when 
wxWindow::SetMinSize was implemented)

basically that saying if you are in pre-stable releases of wx then the 
minsize feature will not be available. 2.5.1 was the first of the unstable 
releases before the 2.6.x versions and is over a year +8 months outdated.

The MinSize implementation patch evidently breaks compilation when using 
early libs(at least 2.5.1), but the patch to that patch breaks the minsize 
implementation, so while it will compile with the old libs the minsize 
implementation is gone for all lib versions..

So, with this type of version parsing example, at the least, the 
functionality can exist where the newer libs support it.

I think the best solution would be to implement the MinSize scheme under 
2.4.0 conditions(or 2.5.1) so it catches everybody.. Instead of just not 
backward-supporting the minsize scheme..
