Here's the thing: wxWidgets ( currently) will not build on 10.8 (in a supported way at least). This is due to the fact that the required SDK containing Carbon support does not exist anymore. There is the port wxWidgets-devel (2.9.4) that builds fine. Of course there is the chance that all dependents may not yet work with the newer version (I know some). The wxWidgets stable should be ok, as soon as 3.0 is released, which unfortunately may take some time still.
