ok, so I'll provide a new package with the contribs.

no you should not do this !
./configure \
then the configure should detect the right headers and libs, 
or check the output of wx-config-2.8 how to pass this in the configure for 
pgadmin3 as CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS
./configure --help should give you an idea. If I find the time I'll have a 
look at the pgadmin3 configure and give you more detailed infos how to 
compile with wxWidgets.

otherrwise wxWidgets and wxGtk cann't be installed at the same time. And I 
have not the time to recompile all programs against the wxWidgets-2.8

libxml2 is a problem, because a lot of packages ar eusing this library. So we 
have to be careful ...
