Hello Willy,

For wxWidgets-3.2.1 you list libmspack as a hard dependency. It is not -
upstream lists it as optional and wxWidgets will build just fine and
work properly without it.

 From the CMAKE output, clean Slackware64.15.0 gemu VM:

//Path to a file.

//Path to a library.


and configure states:
--with-libmspack        use libmspack (CHM help files loading)

libmspack provides the capability for wxWidgets to decode some
deprecated Microsoft file formats, none of which we need or use in
Linux, unless to support old applications in WINE or compile wxWidgets
for MS Windows OS. CHM is a deprecated MS Windows help file format.
