Your suggestion worked out great for me, after hours
compiling as explained in the amule.org-howtos, that never really
worked out for me under VL 5.9.
It's as you said: the wxWidgets were the problem.
thx a lot
edit: to say it again: use vpackager >> cruxports4sl and install wxWidgets, but
not amule, which got stuck while trying to compile under vpackager. Just download
the latest version of amule and install it with the usual: ./configure > make > make install
