Wx (any version) is missing in 5.24 (all platforms). It was available in 5.22 on Windows and seems to build normally with CitrusPerl and StrawberryPerl.

Wx fails because A-wW won't build first.

It worked in 5.22 because that was version 0.68, but by 5.24 it was up to version 0.69 and the multiple patches in the module are too long for the build script

Version 0.69 isn't building for any of the active PPM branches.

According to cpantesters.org, Alien::wxWindows 0.69 builds w/o problems on Windows with Strawberry Perl 5.24.

Could the failure be specific to the AS build setup?
