Subject: Try to autodetect WXDIR and WXWIN on Win32
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 548b
On Windows, the installation of WxWindows should be to a pretty predictable location most of the time... Namely C:\wxWidgets-$version and C:\wxWindows-$version. On Win32, if WXWIN and WXDIR are not defined, autodetect the location of these and use them for the WXWIN and WXDIR values, emitting a warning to say you used the autodetected locations and they can be overridden using WXWIN and WXDIR. If you wanted to be even more cautious (although that's probably not necesary in the Win32 case) you could even prompt before you try to autodetect.

The functionality sounds fine. Do you mind submitting a patch? Regards Mattia
