No need to lecture. Anytime I hear my laptop fans kick into high gear and
run that way for more than 5 minutes, I hunt down the source of the issue
and make it stop. Let it run for an hour? No thanks. I have no interest in
potentially overheating my laptop and unnecessarily shortening its lifespan
trying to compile something like this. The only reason I posted the
information was in case others might find it helpful, plus I thought the wx
authors might want to track down the cause of this compilation behavior and
fix it in their source code.
