ecosconfig should not depend on wx. Part of the problem that nobody
builds configtool from sources, is that it needs wx and it is hard to
build. ecosconfig on the other hand is easy to build and it should
stay that way. configtool is only nice to have. ecosconfig is
necassary and has to remain easy to build.

Maybe you need a mixture of wcharunix.h and other header files. You
should be able to rely on <wchar.h> since it is part of libc. So try
to get as much as possible from there. Then just add what is missing
in wcharunix.h. 

I suppose another approach is find out what the POSIX way is of doing
this. I guess the current code is following the M$ way of doing it,
which might not be too portable to *nix systems. However the POSIX way
of doing it might be more portable and work on M$ systems.
