Looking at your spec file, you don't support STL and ANSI variants. So
these problems may appear later.

These problems appear, when STL-based and wxcontainer-based binaries
appear on a single machine.

Well, I did not see project, that depend on STL-enabled wxWidgets yet
(and ANSI variant uses a different library names).

To build just a wxcontainer variant, you can pick a single spec file,
but resulting RPMs will not be compatible until %wx_requires appear (rpm
is not smart enough to discriminate between two shared library variants
selected by RPATH.
