ok, after using a newer set of headers, wx will build fine linking with 

but, I used the static libs from libunicow and dynamic lib of opencow so 
it's an error.. maybe types for one of the calls or something, but the 
official ms unicows.dll produced the same issue.  And of course if you 
remove any unicow.dll then it shows an error in that fashion so at least it 
appears to be setup in the right posture.

so, next I see 2 possible solutions..

1. get the libunicows source to build the dll so it can be used instead of 
trying to cross different(but supposedly the same) libraries.

2. get the opencow source(strictly a vc6 project) to build the .a libs to be 
used for the static bindings.

my guess is that either option should not be too hard to accomplish, but it 
appears that choice #1 would be more useful since the libunicows source 
comes with a variety of platform ready makefiles and is already setup to 
some degree for usage with autotools.

any suggestions for that?

I'm guessing it's a matter of a few linking opts or something but I am 
pretty clueless :)
