It was helpful, thanks.
It doesn't matter to me if I work against precompiled contribs or my own
extras/contrib, just trying to get to a successful build under Cygwin.

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
