I've sent a pull request to the maintainer of homebrew.
Hopefully it should then just be a matter of brew install wxmac

Homebrew's wxWidgets already builds 32 bit, but it omitted the

I remember that the impression that Brian Lewis was also looking into

I wonder if GHC 7 makes any of this easier...
