Great to know. You should probably consider updating http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/WxHaskell/Building
where binary releases are mentioned as the "official" way to install
wxhaskell once this is done.
Since we are on it, will the new cabalized version try to avoid the
default wxwidgets installation on OSX? That is, for the case where
wxhaskell is automatically pulled as a dependency....
