How to upgrade wxWidgets to 2.9.5 in the most painless and safe way?by HelenCr (Monk)

HelenCr has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Dear esteemed PerlMonks
I am requesting your advice on the following issue*:
I am running (and developing in) Perl on two PC's.
PC "A" configuration: Windows XP SP3, Strawberry perl 5.16, wxPerl/wxWidgets versions: 0.9917 wxWidgets 2.8.12
Now what I need to do (following wxPerl: Wx::DatePickerCtrl working, Wx::TimePickerCtrl failing? ) is to upgrade the wxWidgets installations to 2.9.4 (or 2.9.5?). (I understand that "Citrus Perl" is quite convenient for wxWidgets, but I wouldn't want to uninstall/re-install my Perl installations, I've had bad experiences with incomplete/overlapping/incompatible installations in the past).
So my questions are:
a. Can I upgrade wxWidgets from 2.8.12 to 2.9.5 by simply upgrading Alien::wxWidgets?
d. If the answers to all of the above are negative, then can you post a detailed prescription of how to build wxWidgets 2.9.5 (cringe) (scary)?
Many TIA - Helen
