In fact configure will look for a "tree", i.e. a directory where you
_built_ the library, but not installed it, and it will look in
#tree/libmpeg2/.libs ... boring

The same than libmpeg2, a directory where you built it

It looks like the detection of static libraries isn't perfect :(

It looks like 0.8.6 now requires an unicode build of wxwidgets, the one
in pre-compiled contribs is not unicode...

Maybe the wxwidgets unicode detection could be an option that can be
turned off, it would be better.

Hope it clears things
