Question Failed Dependency: Error during Compilation


I've been using Linux for a couple of weeks now as a replacement for XP, and I must say I'm really starting to like it. The first few weeks I had to get used to it because everything takes more time and work to get it to work, but I'm luvin' it now

Anyway, here's my question:
Yesterday I tried to compile/install my first program manually, instead of using RPM packages, but during the compilation i get the following error:

You need wxWidgets to compile aMule. If you have wxWidgets installed, please check that wx-config is in path, and the directory where wxWidgets libraries are installed is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent variable. If you have wx-config in a non-standard location please use the --with-wx-config=/path/to/wx-config configure option.

I understand this is a dependency problem, but I'm sure wxWidgets is installed on my system (a newer version than required). I've read the error, but I'm not sure how to solve it. Can anyone help my trying to fix this? Thanks in advance!

The solution is in front of you

If you have wx-config in a non-standard location please use the
Code:
--with-wx-config=/path/to/wx-config
configure option.

This probably sounds a bit silly but how would I find the path to wx-config. I know the package is installed by using Yast, but I dont have the slightest clue on where I could find it.

Code:
locate wx-config
maybe you have to update the database first. then do
Code:
updatedb
