There is a wx-config in /opt/local/lib/wx-devel/bin/wx-config, and a /usr/bin/wx-config. Is there some confusion between these?

Hmm, sorry, I don't have wxWidgets-devel installed, but I do have wxWidgets installed, and I assumed wxWidgets-devel would install files in the exact same places as wxWidgets, since that is how -devel ports are supposed to function. Apparently wxWidgets-devel breaks with our conventions. In that case, just change the dependency to port:wxWidgets-devel. That's not a change I expect us to be incorporating officially, however.

Also, the existence of /usr/bin/wx-config is surprising, since /usr/bin is a directory into which I would expect only Apple to install, and Apple does not provide any builds of wxWidgets. How did this script get there? Did you install some other wxWidgets binary package before perhaps? If so, that might be interfering, and you should uninstall it.
