Updated wxgtk and dependent packages fix UTF-8 restriction

Publication date: 30 Aug 2015
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 5


wxgtk 3.0.2 in Mageia 5 is built with the --enable-utf8 option, which
restricts the compatibility to UTF-8 instead of the default UTF-16.

This is causing issues with some wxgtk applications (springlobby, mga#8198),
and also with wxPython applications (coban, mga#16397).

wxPython was also updated to version, thus matching wxgtk.

The removal of this --enable-utf8 options implies rebuilding all packages
that depend on wxgtk to pick up the new symbols, hence the number of packages
concerned by the update.
