[erlang-questions] wxWidgets for erlang (again)

Hi guys...

I've re-written the wxwidgets port for erlang.
Give it a try and give me some feedback or patches :-)

It can be found at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxerlang/

The build contains prebuilt versions for linux-x86 and intel-mac. The 
mac version is staticly linked so you don't even need wxwidgets, it 
requires R11B-5 though. The linux version requires wxwidgets 2.8.3 the 
latest stable release. Just found out that different distributions 
builds wx-widgets differently so use the pre-built might not work.

It requires an smp emulator (it uses the thread safe erl_driver api)
so for now a windows version is not possible.

I'm sure it contains a lot of bugs, since I've haven't had the time to 
do a lot of testing. But the basic framework is in place it needs 
testing and developers/development.

So give me some help and it might become something useful in the end.

Some tests/examples are in test directory

E.g.  cd test; erl -smp -pa ../ebin -run basic

PS: Since it is a driver you better get used to that erlang crashes once 
       in a while when you do (or I did) something stupid :-)
