I'm using Slackware 64 14.0 on my office computer. This is a system upgraded from 13.37. I need to use the wxwidgets-based "wxt" terminal in gnuplot. The official gnuplot Slackware package does not support it, as wxwidgets is not included in the distribution. I built and installed wxGTK from slackbuild.org, then tried to recompile gnuplot using the official Slackbuild.
As far as I remember I didn't have trouble doing this in 13.37, but this time the configure script failed to detect wxGTK. The reason turned out to be the configure option
(which, in my case, reads "x86_64-slackware-linux", of course). I can't get configure to detect wxGTK unless I remove this option.
Could those who know the internals of these things enlighten me about what's going on in here? As I said, something appears to have changed in 14.0, as I remember doing the very same thing without such an issue. Could this be a problem with the wxwidgets scipts?
