Nope. How can I understand what's being included when?

I am trying to build the project by invoking make from the msys shell. Therefore the command I'm issuing for compilation is "make." I think you're suggesting that I compile only the part of wxWidgets that's causing the failure. Is this correct? If so I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to do that.

I realize that at this point my questions/issues probably aren't MingW specific. If this isn't interesting for this mailing list please just say so and I'll try to find a more targeted audience.

Thank you,
