Try the command "locate" - as in "locate libwx".  You may need to first "updatedb" though.  If locate is not installed, I recommend downloading and installing.

You are all trying your best to help me however I did not state this very well.   I doubled the points because I was not doing my part.

If I get the error message "lacking library xyzpdq"

How do I get that library ?  I assume it is likely in a common package but what package is it in ?  Is there a "what library is contained in" command or something like it. ?

as I said search for the library in
http://rpmfind.net and download the rpm package and install the it using
rpm -i rpmpackage.rpm

or find the website for the library and download the source and compile the source and the install
which in your case is the wxwindows library which is available from http://wxwindows.org/downld2.htm

and you will need the gtk version I think .. http://www.wxwindows.org/dl_gtk.htm#stable
