This looks a lot like the errors I was getting trying to update my
Audacity SlackBuild to version 1.3.4 for -current.  wxGTK 2.6.4 built
and installed fine, as did Audacity 1.3.4, but Audacity would segfault
immediately.  I ended up using wxPython instead and now Audacity 1.3.4
works fine on -current.

The problem is that wxPython is a much larger build.  It would be nice
to get wxGTK to work for Audacity and others.  I'll try to test this
patch and see if it will work for Audacity.
