wxWidgets (formerly known as wxWindows) is a class library for C++ providing
GUI components and other facilities on several popular platforms (and some
unpopular ones as well).
This package provides common support files not bound to any
particular wxWidgets release, such as font metrics required by some
ports, and miscellaneous developer aids and binary utilities.
