Do I remember correctly that Strawberry Perl bundles a compiler? If so, are you using it? Is the build for Wx compiling wxWidgets from source or getting a prebuilt binary from somewhere? If there is a prebuilt wxWidgets involved, you will probably need to build that library from source using the compiler bundled with Strawberry Perl.

Have you considered using Tk instead if you cannot get Wx to build?

    Yes, I am using the compiler bundled with Strawberry perl. I'm running into errors simply using Makefile.PL. I tried that to reproduce the errors obtained when running the CPANM client.

    I am installing from CPAN -- so the Wx package provides me with sources only AFAICT. That is why it is so confusing. I'm using GCC 7.1.0.

      You have the sources for the Wx XS extension, but are you also building the wxWidgets library from source or are you getting a binary from somewhere?

        I had installed other Wx modules (ie. Ailen::wxWidgets) prior to installing this one. I am operating under the assumption that those installed correctly as that was what the CPAN result told me.
