can;t compile 2.0.5 with wxgtk 2.8.12

All kinds of errors about conversions from const char * to wxString or wxChar.
Even if I add masks to them, FileFormats.cpp will not compile; errors on
the exts.Add statements.

You’re trying to build on some version of Linux?

If you are you should know to provide copious information including the complete error output.

What version of Linux? What version of libsndfile are you compiling against?
