By the way, I think you can drop the `gendesk` make dependency if you ship the .desktop file separately.

@kylesferrazza & @maksverver
Thanks! It installs smoothly now.

@maksverver
Looks good, I'll update this package within the next hour

I created a PKGBUILD that links against the wxgtk package from Arch (instead of compiling the bundled source code). That's simpler and seems to work just fine.

PKGBUILD here:

Kyle, what do you think? Worth replacing the official PKGBUILD?

`tar jxf ../wxWidgets-${_wxver}.tar.bz2` is not needed. It has been done by makepkg, `-> Extracting wxWidgets-3.0.2.tar.bz2 with bsdtar`.

The following PKGBUILD works for me for Golly-2.8:
