Maybe.  I'm not quite sure about some of the finer details of linking  
libraries and loading extensions.  I think I went to the extreme and  
assumed wxlibrary symbols needed by the grass nviz module would be  
available because the wxpython modules would have loaded them.   
Really, if a module needs a symbol directly, it should link the  
library itself.

I'll look into it later, busy figuring out Snow Leopard stuff now...

I think it's generated during the install process, so you won't find  
it in the source.  Do you have any wx files at all in your site-
