As previously mentioned in pkg/43943, building x11/wxGTK24 fails during
the configure phase with:

checking for TIFFError in -ltiff... yes
checking for GTK+ version... 
checking for pkg-config... /d0/build/pkgsrc/x11/wxGTK24/work/.tools/bin/pkg-config
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
configure: error: 
Please check that gtk-config is in path, the directory
where GTK+ libraries are installed (returned by
'gtk-config --libs' command) is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
equivalent variable and GTK+ is version 1.2.3 or above.

*** Error code 1

Attempt to build x11/wxGTK24 on NetBSD/i386-5.1_STABLE.  (-current had
no problem when last tried).

A patch posted by obache@ in pkg/43943 allowed x11/wxGTK24 to build and
install.  For the current revision of affected files:

 NetBSD-5 is EOL and x11/wxGTK24 has been removed from pkgsrc (2015Q4).

 This PR is no-longer relevant and may be closed.
