Hi All:

When i install wxPython on cygwin in windows xp, i get this error and can't continue...

my enviroment:

$ cygcheck -c cygwin
Cygwin Package Information
Package Version Status
cygwin 1.7.5-1 Incomplete

wxPython-src-2.8.11.0

Following the build instructions on www.wxpython.org, before the installing of wxPython i have installed additional packages as :
autoconf
automake
gcc-core
gcc-g++
gcc-mingw
gcc-mingw-core
gcc-mingw-g++
make
mingw-runtime
mingw-zlib
patch
w32api // i can't find this package when i am installing cygwin, so it was not be installed

Then: i put the sourcecode to /usr/sr/wxPython-src-2.8.11.0

$cd /usr/sr/wxPython-src-2.8.11.0
$CC="gcc -mno-cygwin -mwindows" \
CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin -mwindows" \
LDFLAGS="-mno-cygwin -mwindows" \
./configure \
--with-msw \
--build=i686-pc-mingw32 \
--prefix=/opt/wx/2.8 \
--enable-unicode \
--enable-debug \
--enable-debug_gdb \
--enable-geometry \
--enable-display \
--enable-shared \
--enable-optimise \
--with-expat=builtin \
--with-regex=builtin \
--with-zlib=builtin

$make $* \
&& make -C contrib/src/gizmos $* \
&& make -C contrib/src/stc $*

and then :
./src/msw/utils.cpp: In function ?const wxChar* wxGetHomeDir(wxString*)?:
./src/msw/utils.cpp:392: error: cannot convert ?const char*? to ?const wxChar
*? for argument ?1? to ?wxChar* wxGetenv(const wxChar*)?

r wxGetUserHome(const wxString&)?
make: *** [basedll_msw_utils.o] Error 1

please help!
