Be careful of uninstallation. I wouldn't recommend it. What I would do is:
perl Build.PL wxWidgets-version=2.9.4
I use CPAN. Did you know that you can configure CPAN to uninstall for you? It'll uninstall conflicting files, but don't use it if you use INSTALL_BASE. Enter the CPAN shell:
cpan> o conf init mbuild_install_arg cpan> --uninst 1 cpan> o conf commit
Check that the change took effect:
cpan> o conf mbuild_install_arg mbuild_install_arg [--uninst 1]
Now do
cpan> o conf init make_install_arg cpan> UNINST=1 cpan> o conf commit cpan> o conf make_install_arg make_install_arg [UNINST=1]
It worked. You're done. Now install Wx.

[Tux]: C99 is not supported on HP-UX before 11.31
[Tux]: at least not reliable. And perl itself requires C89 (but probes if it can safely use some C99 features)
Eily takes a peek in the last hour of CB to discover that LanX woke up is boobs with some Queen :P
[Eily]: s/\K\bis\b/h/
[Tux]: you left the space in
[Tux]: and that \K is not required
[Tanktalus]: 11.31 is already 10 years old... you still need to support versions older than that? My condolences :)
[Eily]: meh, got confused. s/(?=\bis\b)/h/ will work better :)
[Eily]: \K keeps the thing on the left, not the right (IE, it's like look behind, not look ahead)
