Looks like there is some confusion on wether wxwidgets was built with
unicode support or not.

I guess you use the contrib package from our FTP. can you check in
config.log or vlc-config that the header used for wxwidgets are the one
of /usr/win32/include and not the one from Gentoo.

Also, which version of the contrib package do you have ?
And for next time could you provide the errors from make and not
./compile so we can see the gcc line which produce those error.
