Well, that’s exactly why I use homebrew and you should too . :-) It’s designed to make installing stuff easier, it will also download and install for you any dependencies of what you are trying to install. It’s quite easy to install homebrew just type in the terminal:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(/usr/bin/curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/master/Library/Contributions/install_homebrew.rb)”

Don’t use sudo. If you can’t install to /usr/local then make sure you own that directory, since homebrew wants to make sure you don’t need to sudo to install stuff.

Well, when I had wxHaskell working I compiled a wxHaskell program and it worked but I didn’t test wxWidgets independently.

No need for that, the pre-installed ones are older versions.
