OK, this BuildRequires was a hack because it needed the 32 bit version
of wxGTK, but you can't just specify 'wxGTK.i386' in RPM, so we needed
to find some file in the RPM instead.  However the file we chose has
moved or changed ...

Yeah, you won't be able to use the 64 bit library.  For some
labyrinthine reason it needed the 32 bit version.
