Hi Glynn,

1/ I tried compiling using --with-python=no --with-wxwidgets
But with svn revision 30941 I get:
Errors in:
In case of errors please change into the directory with error and run

Running make in
gives these errors:
-fPIC -I/usr/local/include 
-I/usr/local/include/wx-2.8 -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGE_FILES
-D__WXDEBUG__ -D__WXGTK__ -pthread   -DPACKAGE=\""grasslibs"\" 
-o OBJ.i686-pc-linux-gnu/cats.o -c cats.cpp

make: *** [OBJ.i686-pc-linux-gnu/cats.o] Error 1

2/ When I compile svn revision 30941 using both --with-python
I don't have any compile problems. 

So it seems that to have the wxPython gui I need to have swig installed.
